Them's hornets, not wasps!

That's like Hitler vs Mussolini.

Lucky #13.

It's at Stoney Hill, and I'm waiting for the owner of the putter currently sitting in the basket, to get the courage to take on the hornets, so I don't have to.

I'm glad we don't have those down here. We have some ground dwelling hornets but they're not too common.

I once encountered a basket where Yellow Jackets had taken up residence inside the pole, and they were none too happy with the constant chain rattling! We managed to putt out quickly and get out of there with no issue though.

This spring into summer Ive seen lots at Rockland Park. Ive seen red fox, turkey, deer (now fawns in spots too), barred owls, bald eagles, red tailed hawks, kestrels, peregrine falcons, broad winged hawks, merlins, red shouldered hawks, indigo buntings, scarlet tanagers, Orioles, blue herons, moles, groundhog, rabbits, squirrels, chipmunks, toads, frogs, box turtles, water turtles, green snakes, garter snakes, black snakes, ringnecked snakes, copperheads, salamanders, and heaven knows how many insects and arachnids and others Ive forgotten.

The icing on the cake came Saturday July 14th. I heard a strange chuffing sound to the right of hole 16s fairway. I scan visually and 50 yards off I see a large dark shape moving through dense woods over a ridge behind a rock outcrop. Im thinking, Im pretty sure thats a bear, as I urge the dog slowly along(hes leashed, luckily). The mass has moved on and we continue a few steps forward when suddenly out of the sink hole on the left hand side of the fairway(30 yards in front of us) comes a MASSIVE bear cub bounding after what I now know is mama!

This cub was at least 150 pounds and built like a barrel. I know mama was BIG. Thankfully I didnt get between them but Im pretty sure my dog could help me handle a situation.

Sorry, no pics

Was looking for a disc today near basket 17 at heckscher state park on Long island and ran into some bees. Decided to cut my losses and left the Valkyrie behind.

We get the normal stuff- deer, Fox, gopher, turkeys etc on a daily basis.

The coolest ones are the raptors though- hawks, falcons and all kinds of birds like to follow our field mower when we mow the holes on ski trails and divebomb all the field mice that run away into the short grass. It’s insane. Our biggest is a red tailed hawk that looks around turkey sized. Like clockwork. Cool to see them learn a diesel motor as the “dinner bell”

We've had a large barred owl take up residence on a string of holes at Stoney Hill recently---it was seen in 3 different rounds this past weekend, and I walked up to within 30 or 40 feet of it.
