I agree that snake watching can be fascinating, but I noticed that many country and suburban folks in northern VA (where I used to live) were horrified of snakes. One of their common experiences was finding the blacksnake demurely looking out of their bluebird box just before fledging time. It usually takes a herpetologist to be philosophical under such circumstances. But one good way to overcome fear of wasps is to build a wasp farm -- as described by Howard Ensign Evans in his book by that name. Harry Homeowner can rejoice in the wasps' predatory feats by counting the caterpillars in the wasp nests, and knowing that his garden is being rid of pests organically and free-of-charge.
