I was so excited to see three of them today Hazel. Seen two together only a couple times this year. I've been very diligent with keeping the feeders clean and fresh nectar so it was a pleasant surprise to see three perched on the clothes line.
Going to go out and perform my scientific experiment tonight and see if the bees (uhm, excuse me, Hornets )
can keep their greedy little wingy things off and out of the jar.
