Stag beetle and hornet, video


This video shows an oak tree in the Netherlands. It is bleeding, attracting many small flies and three wasps to drink the juice; while a stag beetle watches.

Then, a European hornet arrives, driving away the wasps.

Hornets and stag beetles are among the biggest European insects.

Gerrit Jan Spek made this video.
