"The wing structure of the hornet, in relation to its weight, is not suitable for flight, but he does not know this and flies anyway." --Albert Einstein
One day this summer while working the fields, The Farmer encountered a nest. He hit it with the tractor, hidden as it were in the leaves of a tree at the edge of a field.
Good news: The tractor he was driving was the only one that we own that has an enclosed cab.
Bad news: Since the air conditioning on this mid-80s tractor hasn't worked in years, all the windows were open, and the door was taken off entirely.
Good news: Even though he was instantly surrounded by a swarm of flying, stinging insects (we suspect hornets), he was able to drive off without being stung. At all.
Bad news: The next day, when he returned for a picture, he was stung. Just once, fortunately.
The moral is perhaps to leave dangerous situations well enough alone...
