Anyway we had all their live relatives a couple of weeks back - they kept appearing, about 20 a day in the bedroom down that end and attic investigations threw up a nest that took him a week of evenings to dispose of. I guess these guys had been part of a getaway gang?

I've just turned the electricity back on after we were playing hunt the disgusting smell that's been getting worse over the past couple of weeks, and eventually tracked it down to the consumer unit.SO duly removed cover (having spoken to himself soundly about all risk potentials) and we were disgusted to find it packed with dead wasps! Yuk! Those who can/are vaguely interested access the Book of Faces for the photos I've just taken. *shudders* Mon 21 Sep 2009 16:10:22 GMT+1 mittfh http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/09/random_photo_generator.shtml?page=84#comment21 Eric's using the BBC's internal search engine, which searches their own photo library.So, what can I turn up on the web for a "table" image search?Google's first is Frances' image from treehugger - their 8th image is a periodic table!Bing gives me this: http://www.chiphi-pi.org/b2b/pics/Teak_Table.jpgTypically for a Microsoft product, its fourth image is creating a table in Word...Yahoo, Lycos Altavista give the clubviplife image - AV's 11th image is a chap at the foot of "Table Rock".Taking a different tack and looking at databases consisting solely of images, Getty Images gives us these two as its first choices:http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/90607372/Stonehttp://www.gettyimages.com/detail/90972633/Getty-Images-EntertainmentWikimedia Commons gives us this:http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Tisch.pngFlickr thinks this is the most relevant:http://www.flickr.com/photos/princesscy/3518838524/While PicasaWeb prefers this lamp:http://picasaweb.google.com/lh/view?q=table&psc=G&filter=1#5300932465035191858And Webshots has evidently been invaded:http://home-and-garden.webshots.com/photo/2674571970079758220dFQsYG Mon 21 Sep 2009 15:52:16 GMT+1 needsanewnickname http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/pm/2009/09/random_photo_generator.shtml?page=80#comment20 Excuse spelinge missteaks, I just got a bit over-excited.

Second photo does not look as good an image. even though its same image. Is it compressed differently? I know that compression under foot or newspaper is normal end point for wasps.

So it the game put into the photo search engine the most obvious thing in the picture till it gives you the thing you entered back again or you end up with unpublishable material?

Nice bit of macro photography - if you're not terrified of the "wee beasties"...Obligatory anecdote: Many years ago, one found its way down my sister's front. It's hard to say who was the most scared out of the pair...my sister, who was screaming like a banshee whilst sprinting around the garden and flapping her top; or the wasp, who was trying to find an escape route from its mobile prison and hoping that repeated stinging of the 'walls' would help it in its bid for freedom...Needless to say, after that incident, the mere sight of a bee or wasp would send her into 'panic mode' - screaming whilst fleeing the scene pronto.
