opposites

The wasp and the turtle are real opposites.

A turtle can be very old, maybee that's why she is slow - why hurry? She'll probably arrive at time, if not today, then tomorrow. She are going to walk in the puddle, that's why she has her red boots on. Remember the porcupine? He stuck in the puddle, but the turtle loves water.

Then came the wasp flying very fast. The wasp is almost allways mad and busy. "Away, that's my food!" he cries, if he finds some people, who eat jam outdoor.

The turtle sang: "Slow down, you move too fast". The wasp turned back and cried: "It's none of your business!" and tried to sting the turtle at her shield. "It was not the most clever thing to do", the turtle said, while the wasp broke his spine.

The wasp flew very mad away, while the turtle, happy as ever, continued her way to the puddle.

OOOh yeah--now you're talkin'! I just saw a great documentary on japanese wasps and how they wage war on european and japanese bees and steal their honey. Very big and scary insects they were. Now a turtle would never do such a thing. ;)

Your turtle looks so sweet and happy, and the hornet does look very angry! What a great little story and wonderful characters to illustrate it.

That's one cool wasp, if he can fly away with a broken spine... it also makes it a vertibrate! Cute pic, btw. I hate wasps.
