The Birds and the Bees

I know, they’re wasps, but “The Birds and the Wasps” sounds weird. I figured that there are many of you who have been sitting patiently by your computers, waiting to see the latest on the “Bee Saga”. Well, not to disappoint, here they are! What you can’t see from the photo, is that their hive is about twice the size of three days ago.  The hive is now rather oblong in shape, pushing back into the foliage.

Here is a picture of the path that the wasps have chosen as their new landing strip. Their home is in the third bush in the row on the right. At least 30 people pass by on this path each morning and evening, some with their dogs. Is it time to be the bad guy, and report these little squatters?

For those of you who don’t care much about bees or wasps, here is a sweet dove who has made her nest just on top of my rather patriotic window shade on our back patio.

How interesting and perhaps sad that the birds and the bees are making their homes so close to us humans. But wait, is it not the other way around? We have encroached on their territory. They were here first!
