Yep... I am always waking up my neighbours.
For some reason all the Hymeoptera seem to spend the night in one 15m stretch of this ditch near my house. If you go outside this area, there seem to be far fewer. Perhaps it is less windy or something.
Also, the male Coelioxys that I see absolutely never spend the night on anything flexible, they seem to prefer stiff dried stems.
Getting out with the camera allows me to observe so much!
