Thirsty wasps

YOURS (UK) - - Over To You -

I saw some­thing in my gar­den re­cently that I’d never seen be­fore. While top­ping up the bird bath I went to re­move some rose pe­tals float­ing in the wa­ter and spot­ted a wasp on one of them. It ap­peared to be having a drink. Was he re­ally drink­ing or was I be­ing fan­ci­ful?

Olive Parry, Coven­try

Yours says: No you weren’t imag­in­ing it, Olive. We checked and ap­par­ently wasps do drink wa­ter as a source of food and en­ergy.
