My stories of our three cat families, and other cat encounters
Monday, October 6, 2014
This has nothing to do with cats; it's just a really cool thing that my brother discovered at his home. Brother who works too many random hours to have a cat (or cats!) of his own...for now...but he's got this monster hornet's nest on his house. Isn't it just bizarre? We had a hornet's nest in our tree years ago, which only revealed itself when the maple leaves fell in the autumn. Gave me the willies, realizing that those hornets were over my head all summer!? Hornet's nests are fascinating, however, when you get up close to see detail. They look alien, or outer-spacey to me. Due to the cooler temperatures that we are now experiencing in Michigan...wait, did it ever get warm?...those hornets are pretty much down for the count. Brother will wait until he's sure the nest is completely empty (read: dead!) before he scrapes it off the eave and house. In the meantime, you wouldn't notice it was there, if he didn't point it out. Doesn't Mother Nature do some really interesting things?
