This weeks Friday Fictioneers (thanks, as always, Rochelle) 100 word ‘writing challenge’ for those who want to participate (great fun – give it a try) is the following photo prompt:
The yellow jacket. Yes, sets things off quite nicely. Dressed for the occasion, she savors the idea of fresh prey, mouth-watering. Today was going to be a very good day. All her senses, alert and alive. An old nest discarded nearby, didn’t matter. New worlds to explore. New prey to devour. A new nest for her little ones. Food at the ready, when they hatched. Time to protect. Time to kill!
*Wasps feed on nectar and pollen, but they are primarily predators, preferring a diet of insects and spiders. Only the female wasps are equipped with stingers. Originally the stinger was also used to plant eggs into the body of her living but paralyzed prey (Now nesting is utilized). The female wasp fiercely guards the nest! (No joke!)
Thanks for stopping by, have a great day.
