Micah: Is it true what I heard about Marcus honking again?
Buddy: It depends on what you heard. If you heard he was communicating with geese again, that's sort of true.
Micah: How can it be "sort of" true?
Buddy: Well, Marcus sort of thinks he was communicating with geese again. I couldn't attest that either species was on the same honking dialect. In fact, I am pretty certain they weren't.
Micah: How can you be sure?
Buddy: As we walked closer, the geese backed up and began to two-step to our left.
Micah: So why did Marcus come home so proud of himself?
Buddy: He thinks he taught them to dance.
PS: Regarding yesterday's post - Flat Black Flying Insect - where Jan was stung by the mystery insect. (She only saw it squashed for a second.) She tried to cut the same bushes in the rain yesterday, hoping things would be uneventful. Before long, there were insects flying around, so she retreated.
She really wants to find out where they are hiding, so when it rained a little harder, she thought she would try again. They came out again. She came in the house to get her reading glasses. Wearing them, she was able to stand on the porch and locate one upside down through an opening in the bush. W- A - S - P!
We've had wasps flying around "on" our porch for years. Never found where they came from and they never bothered us. Wasps in the bushes is something new. These didn't actually bother Jan either. She researched over the weekend and found wasps can build a nest in a bush and be highly aggressive to someone just walking by. But there is no nest in these bushes!
Wonder what kind of wasps these could be? She accidentally "attacked" the wasp that stung her, not the other way around, and so far they haven't bothered her, but Jan is terrified they won't take kindly to repeated disturbances. Those bushes have got to be trimmed! Any safe advice?
