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!

I love how the minute the Hornet takes off towards the camera the video cuts off

Don’t you just love when the news decides it’s gonna change an insect species name to make it sound more deadly 🤦🏻‍♂️

For some reason this reminds me of Bumblebee. I guess the designers of that movie took influences from this hornet.

I hope it'll never come to Europe like the vespa velutina. So scary insect

L'insecte le plus élaboré , un prédateur complet. Dommage qu'en Europe nous n'ayons pas ce type de frelon.
I want a hornet
