Hornet - Vespa crabro

This beauty ambled past me and hung upside down from a leaf in a bush clutching something in its front legs and jaws so I had to investigate in case it was something meeting a grizzly end at the hands of this predator. However , I was surprised to see that it was or seemed to be only a lump of vegetation it had carried in and settled down to chew on. I had not seen this behaviour before though I was aware of and seen them chew wood to use to build their nests.
