This is a closeup video from The Smithsonian Channel of a hornet emerging from its silk cocoon. I'm going to be honest, it made me a little queazy. Were those sounds the real sound or were those added after? I probably could have gone my whole life without seeing that and had no regrets on my deathbed. I mean no regrets related to hornet videos, a shit-ton of regrets otherwise. I don't think I've ever made a right decision.
Hit the jump for the video.
Thanks to Tank, who would have used a stick to poke that thing back in there where it belongs.
