Do you ever get the feeling you are being watched? Even when there is nobody there? Anybody human, that is.
I glanced out the window next to my desk last week and noticed a wasp peeking into the room. Seemingly not moving. Odd.
What? I wanted to say. (full disclosure: I actually did say that out loud)
So, yes, I got totally distracted – needing to take a closer look…
Mmm…an unusually cooperative wasp for photography purposes. It made me think…what is wrong with it/him/her? Will it have an “Oh No Mr. Bill” moment?
But no…it persevered…
The next day – at around the same time – my observer was still there, but had made substantial progress up the glass.
We stared at each other…
…until I gave up the staring contest and went back to the computer. I did appreciate the opportunity for a macro shot though. It’s not often (actually never) that flying insects hold still for me.
It kept watch the rest of the day, but was gone by the next morning.
(One thing for sure: I’ve got to clean that window)
