Re European Hornet

With regard to Rob Jerrard's earlier post: yes this does appear to be a European Hornet - a rather beautiful looking insect (certainly no more evil looking than bees or any other insect!). Not sure if you were joking about leaving quickly Rob,  but I have never felt threatened by the presence of Hornets, even when observing them at a nest, finding them far more approachable than other wasp species. [NB Avoid confusion with the larger, darker, invasive and more agressive Asian Hornet. ]
