    This hen blackbird while banqueting on early autumn blackberries was persistently buzzed by a wasp.
She obviously had enough of the interruptions.
Caught in a flash she squeezed out the sting, crunched his mid section, set him aside and then went back
to her feed but not before having a good long stare at her handiwork - maybe making sure that he was
permanently dispatched?
The wasp wasn't even on her menu.
There's bound to be a moral to this story but I won't even begin to make an attempt at that.

Following is the sequence of events as they unfolded;
