A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

Hornet's Nest in Rear View Mirror?

While doing some errands a few weeks ago, with son Ryan driving, we both noticed an hornet "admiring" itself on the driver's side rear view mirror. We did not think much of it, as we were stopped at a light, but the thing kept hanging around. Due to the long wait time on this particular light, I had plenty of time to take a photo of it. Once the car moved again, it disappeared very quickly, but not blown or flown away, it went behind the mirror, much to our surprise. Can a hornet build a nest behind the mirror(s)?

Fast forward to this week, and sure enough, another hornet was "admiring" itself in the same mirror even though we were several miles from home (and not near the other location), but the thing did the same exact thing (going behind mirror once car started moving). Do hornets let "outsider hornets" into an "already" built nest? Can we get rid of these pests...or pets in vehicle mirrors? So strange, don't you think?
