    Hi, today while at Belton house we spotted the biggest hornet I’ve ever seen, it buzzed us a few times before landing on my daughters shoe it was quite literally as wide as her shoe, it seemed quite a deep red colour with an enormous and quite visible stinger. Her shoes is 2 1/4 inches and it sat still until we carefully got away from it.

    i feel the size I’m describing is accurate and not at all exaggerated.

    what on Earth was it.??
