A vistit from the Ma Feng.

I just went to substitute a cup of tea for some coffee (that Coco, our office manager, in all her kindness thought about buying this morning) when I noticed an oversized wasp on the window -- a good inch in length. The insect was seemingly lost and a little lazy from the colder weather we've had these day. I asked a co-worker to identify the arthropod, he told me this was called a ma feng (mother bee or the mother of all bees -- I didn't enquire) and it's actually a hornet.

We freed it a couple days later when the same co-worker realized it was still there.
