I have a confession to make-I am terrified of stinging bugs. When I was a little kid I was afraid to catch lightning bugs unless they were glowing because they looked too much like wasps to me, and I was afraid I’d catch a wasp by mistake.
This is the view from my shared office window on campus. Pretty fancy-I get one office for me and one for the rest of the teaching team. I shut this creature in between the glass and the screen. I felt a little cruel, but more relieved that it couldn’t get out and sting me with its fangs. I’m sure it had fangs. Even if the other teachers said it was harmless, I KNOW I saw fangs AND a huge stinger.
