Feeding Japanese giant hornets オオスズメバチ(Vespa mandarinia japonica )
Sightings. A couple of Japanese Giant Hornets feeding on the roots of a tree. Didn't want to get too close, but wanted to see them share the find. They are so cute when they are cleaning themselves, don't you think? When the second hornet showed up they greeted each other on the mouth and then took turns at the tree sap. The first one took of(straight at me) probably to go call the rest of the hive for lunch!
