Bless him. This little lady is a madam 😆
Dilly thinks he's a rabbit because he was raised with one as a kitten. He acts brave until he's faced with a strange looking bug. Then he tells me to deal with it. He has a noise he makes that lets me know there's a crazy looking bug in the house. His vet called him a predator once but my answer was he's more like a good bug hunter 😁

You know me so well...YellowJackets drinking the water under the clover...and honey bees on the flowers...ouch
Ouch that sucks. Was it both? My old home remedy is a baking soda poultice on bee stings after removing the stinger. Which has to be done not by just pulling it out. You have to slide a fingernail kind of under the point and slide it towards where it went in. So as not to release the poison. I know I'm too late. Sorry 😐

It was a hornet or the yellow jacket...the honey bees were just doing their thing on the clover flowers, but whatever that angry thing with a stinger was...he got me 2 times on the bottom and side of my foot. And he took his stinger with him. My foot is kinda swollen and there's a real hard knot under the first sting. Sad thing is I know better...
