Stinging wildlife of Normality, part 2 in a series of, please, no more than 2?[Apr. 29th, 2009|09:34 am]

or, Fright of the Bumblebee (see Wasp of Doom for the thrilling first part)

This lost creature has been lurking in my bathroom since some time yesterday evening. It made its presence known shortly after Susan had got into the bath, which was fun. For the rest of the evening it bumbled around, perching near any lights that were warm, before going to sleep on the bathroom curtain. I left the door closed and window open overnight, hoping it would go away at sunrise, but instead it went into hiding, only to reappear suddenly in the sink while I was shaving. When I took this photo it was scrabbling around in the bath. I'm really hoping it decides to leave soon; options otherwise are limited (pint glass + card + release at far end of garden; failing that, vacuum cleaner). Edit: fortunately for all concerned, catch-and-release worked. :-)
