Hornet

While looking through some Hives at Buckfastliegh with friends one of them came across this Queen Hornet, unlike the Asian Hornet they seem to leave the Honey Bees alone. This one was very calm and friendly, Claire the lead had it on her hand then put it on a leaf. She then fed it Honey from her finger, amazing to watch.
