Wasp in Thyme

The small flowers are on our backyard Thyme plant and though each blossom can't have more than the tiniest sip of nectar it must be very good judging by the large number bees, wasps and flies that constantly visit. The bees spend barely a second on each little flower and move from one to another without a pause. That explains why you're getting a photo of a wasp today - the wasps spend much more time on each flower and often stop to ponder (and pose). I guess they have no hungry friends waiting anxiously back at the hive like bees do.
