I was reading by my bedroom window yesterday afternoon when I heard the buzzing. Glancing towards the ceiling, I watched the little wasp crawl towards the overhead light. As I debated killing it or trapping it to later set it free, it dove abruptly to some unseen location by my bed. I think I heard the wings rustling on the cotton. No search was launched, however, as the book was more interesting.
Fast forward 24 hours. I was packing up the Canon 40d in my new camera bag (thanks Chuck and Karen!) and noticed the pesky little insect inspecting the middle compartment. Since it didn’t appear to be hostile, I decided to let it live and zipped it up with the Canon for later release. This was the one shot I got before it flew away.
