Whew. That's quite a hornet! Did she ever get eaten?
If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.
Nice closeup! Did it make the fatal descent?

Nope, it eventually flew away... like most of them. It's just nice to catch the interaction on camera when it happens.
Nice! I hate when the insects are so close to falling in and they all of sudden just fly away. Great shots anyways!
Nice shots, Jim. What plant is that? Is it a catesbeai?
Most hornets and wasps in my area are pretty good at not falling into the pitchers either.

It came to me as, "Complex Hybrid". Translation: thorobred mongrel. LOL! When others died from the cold snap and dry summer, this one lives.
