Speaking of which, did anyone see Buddha, Bees and the Giant Hornet Queen (a recent Natural World)?

While not as fundamentally disturbing as The Short Horrible life of the Fig Wasp its Apolcalypse Now meets Helm's Deep vision of the hornet world still had my somewhat wasp-phobic self squirming in the chair.
