The Red-bearded Bee-eater (Nyctyornis amictus) is a species of bird found in the Indo-Malayan subregion of South-east Asia. Its natural habitat is open patches of dense forest.

Most familiar wasps belong to the Aculeata, a division of the Apocrita whose ovipositors are...

Despite the use of the proper name, most social wasps make nests from paper, although some tropical wasp species such as Listenogaster Flavolineata use mud, a far more easy resource for the wasp to collect. The larger colonial species, Yellowjackets,...
