Caption

Common wasps, Vespula vulgaris, feeding on a fallen apple. The common wasp is principally a fruit-eater, biting through the surface of almost any type of fruit to lick up the sugary juices within. It is also a frequent visitor to human rubbish bins and picnic sites. Food is stored in the insect's crop or "social stomach". On its return to the nest, the wasp regurgitates the food in its crop to feed its fellow workers and the queen and larvae.
