Author's notes

Taken soon after a fuel reduction burn whose date I don't recall, but I was surprised to see that this had either escaped burning or had been built so quickly since. The wasp on the right in image 2 seems to have been buzzing its wings.

Not sure what happened here. It seems to have been confirmed (on 3 Feb) before I uploaded it on 4 Feb. Now it's gone back to unidentified. Maybe it was confirmed while I was editing my notes and this caused problems?

You can take that as a double confirmation Cath!
