just ran across these pics. I might have posted them here before, but I forgot if I did. So, either enjoy for the first time, or once again! LOL

This thing was BIIIIIG!!!!

"Brachygastra mellifica, more commonly known as the Mexican honey wasp, is a neotropical social wasp. It can be found in both North and South America. B. mellifica is one of few wasp species that produces honey. It is also considered a delicacy in some cultures in Mexico. This wasp species is of use to humans because they can be used to control pest species and pollinate avocados."

Time to eat!

Source of food
Edit
Brachygastra mellifica serve as food source for the Popoluca Town of Los Reyes Metzontla, Mexico. The Popolucas have at least 17 species of insects in their diet, including B. mellifica. The Spanish local name for this delicacy is "Panal Miniagua," and the Popoluca name is "Cuchii." They eat the honey and larva of these wasps year round, but only harvest when the moon is between its last quarter and waning gibbous. According to traditional knowledge and experience, the nests are full of honey and larvae at this time. These insects can be cooked and used in food items such as tacos and larvae, and are considered a luxury.

Yikes! Wasp honey? Would be interesting to compare to bee honey, I think, then again I am not harvesting that nest or any honey, I am "shicken"?
