Yellow Jacket

Yellow Jacket | Twisp, WA | August 2019

We often face barriers that keep us from favorite activities, work goals or even survival needs. We can break down these challenges and tackle each small piece step-by-step. Or, as this insect decided, we can scout a new route around the obstacle. The yellow jacket wisely abandoned attempts to smash or gnaw through this grimy window pane. Instead, it found a breeze coming through a gap under the door and squeezed through to freedom. Evidence that the simplest solution is often the right solution.

[That said, I never miss an opportunity to swat these bastards.]
