daily life, nature study


We discovered a yellow jacket nest under the bush next to our front door.  A friend of ours, whose brother-in-law raises bees and our friend is learning from him, came over to get rid of the nest.  Below are pictures from this adventure!

Digging for the nest

Found one!

One of the nests he found.  There are some dead yellow jackets there and some that were a day or two away from hatching.  He told us we were about to have many bees swarming around our front door!!
