A beautiful late summer day. In fact it is Labor Day, and this creature is at his leisure.
How sweet it is to take in natures bountiful beauty before the chill winds of Autumn bring with them the inevitable decline.
Ah, pastoral splendor!

Further investigation is required.
It seems that the tragic demise of this poor rat is a veritable windfall for these wasps, providing them with food and possibly even shelter.
Isn't nature marvelous?
