    A few years ago I was at an apartment complex and we had to carry an air handler to the top floor. At the. Erykah top of the stairs was a huge wasp nest just hanging there. Went and got my trusty wasp spray and made the situation safe. Later, in the middle of the install a lady came up to me and asked, "did you kill the wasp nest?" I replied, "yes ma'am. " She then said, "why would you do that, they were not hurting anybody?!" I told her we had to carry heavy equipment up the stairs to make a repair and it was unsafe but it fell on deaf ears....

    This reminded of that situation...

    Had the first one of the year, land on my hat yesterday. It was 60°, so I don't think he had any fight in him yet.

    Saw my first one yesterday... little nest with one guy tending it...

    Took off my hat and swatted him and his nest... One less issue to deal with!

    I don't like wasps and such in general. Honey bees keep my garden looking nice. Wasps hide and sneak behind unit panels waiting to come after me.
    I remember one industrial building, that was built just beside the Brandywine creek in a grove of trees. The bees loved the location. Every unit would always have at least 10-15 wasp and yellow jacket nests inside of it. I'd get lit up every time I went there. Which was offset by the fact that one of the tenants was a photographer whom took very classy nude photographs of women (think Rose in the Titanic movie), but that's a story for another time.

    Yes, and occasionally he was doing live shoots while we were in the space. The models never really seemed to care.

    No, both. The photos he took were of women in the nude. While on set the women walked around naked.
    He also took photos of the women in underwater scenes. I asked him where the photos were taken and he said it was in his brother in laws pool. He also said his brother in law never seemed to have an issue with him borrowing the pool for an afternoon.
