I regret that I missed this contest, John. You nailed the essence, to be sure. I have found them, along with bumble bees and dragon flies to be the most striking and astounding of God'[s creations in the insect world. They are at once awesome construction and they inspire healthy fear and respect. But you can NEVER forget seeing one, which I think is the defining line. Best to you always, Gerard.

It is a myth (at least to some extent as you'll see in my blog) and you had it right, John. Congratulations on taking second place! Love, Carolyn
