A gathering of wasps - Dolichovespula norvegicoides -
Clingmans Dome, Great Smoky Mtns NP, Swain County, North Carolina, USA August 9, 2008
The Angelica at Clingmans Dome had its own "gathering 2008"! It was a feeding frenzy, with the flowers covered with wasps. We assume these are the same male wasps from our previous post. We seem to remember Eric mentioned something about Norwegian? wasps.
