Where Is The Sting?
What's up with people naming things after a scary flying insect? I would not want to live on Hornet Road, and would never get my car washed at the Hornet Car Wash. The name makes me NOT want to go there! There are about 20 species of hornets, and they are a type of wasp. Their stings are less toxic than bees, though the venom has chemicals in it that tell other hornets to attack. They were probably the world's first papermakers. The paper they make is such high quality that it can be written and even typed on! The wasp pictured is one I took with a macro setting, right up on it! I couldn't see in the sun and didn't know what it was. Phil thought I was out of my mind, and I was lucky not to be stung. See you on Tuesday!
"Death has been swallowed up in victory. Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death, is your sting?...But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ."
1 Cor. 15
