Signs of Autumn2

I'm not the only one thrilled with these red and green leaves.
(Same plant as Signs of Autumn1.)

That's some really big fat fly there.

The other one is a yellow jacket (wasp family).

Both just a busy wizzy.
Doing what they do in preparation for winter, I suppose.

I see the paper wasp? more often than the yellow jacket.
(Looks like a paper wasp, anyway.)

We usually get at least one wasp in our house during autumn.
And they are MAD when they get trapped in the house.
Gotta be real good at swatting them, cuz once has to do it.
Don't want to get them any madder.
Unlike the regular honey bee, wasps can sting you multiple times.
