Big Freaking Wasp at Truxtun Park

I hadn’t planned a trip today, as the weather was supposed to be bad, but the rain stopped falling soon after it started, so I took my 300mm lens to Truxtun just to play around. It’s lighter and a little faster and I’ve been neglecting it.
I found a few bugs and a couple of birds, then went home to face a tough day.
We had to have Gabrielle, our 17 year old cat, put to sleep today. We’re going to miss her.

  1. Lovely Photos. Looks like the skink is growing a new tail…..the tails are usually bright blue. Sorry to hear about your cat – so hard to lose a pet. Joan
