Flappery Friday!

For the want of a better word… how about flappery? I mean… how do you describe the commotion when a wasp is fighting a butterfly? Not often one has the luck of getting a few shots of the wasp subduing the butterfly… and then going off with its catch!

Well, I fib… I didn’t get the takeoff and departure… just a few flappery shots. Yes, I know… it’s all a bit of a blur but I promise… the yellow and black is the wasp… and the mostly white is the butterfly. Nature… it happens right at our feet… all we have to do is look!

Happy Friday… and please, don’t believe all this Black Friday hype… stay home (and off the internet… ) and save your hard-earned money!

PS – Look at it this way… that wasp is a metaphor… it’s gonna sting you, the beautiful butterfly – stay away from them shops!

    Cool shot to get, though i do feel sorry for the butterfly. I did not realised wasps would take anything that big!

    Totally avoiding Black Friday. All weekend shopping completed yesterday. Commercialism and consumerism is sheer madness. Groetnis!

      My good lady showed me something she saw on FB this morning… of a Game Store (I think) being invaded… the front doors/ glass suffering in the process! Just DUMB!!

    In die klein wêreld van insekte, gebeur daar daagliks wrede goed. Goed vasgevang, AJ!
    Black Friday….wat ‘n klomp nonsens om mense weer te laat koop en koop, wat hulle nie nodig het nie!
