alarm clocks should have wasp sound integrated
Had the chance to observe the behaviour of another animal: a wasp
It flew in yesterday (I live in a area where there's nature), somehow passed the curtains (clever wasp). I opened the curtains again so it can find the way out (e.g. detection by stronger wind movements from there). Did not hear a sound anymore and thought that project ended successfully...
but ... woke up this morning by a wasp sound (alarm clocks should have such a sound integrated, works great), more precise: hearing it fly against the wall. Opened the blinds on one side only, so it would find the way out this time, but this (at-begin)-clever wasp still did not find the way out: it saw the light, yes, but it could not bypass the glass.
Was interesting to see its attempt flying against the window (all the way from the downside to the upside and that several times, it did not try so much the right or left) while the right window part was open. After a while it seemed exhausted and just went upside by foot (quite nice abilities actually).
I was wondering then: what's so obvious for others (e.g. me) is not seen by it. Would be great to see if it flew out by "luck" or own abilities...
I wonder how this will help its learning for future similar scenarios? (I remember that I brought wasps outside normally by catching them in a glass and putting outside, but that is not real help, or is it? (in the sense of the quote which goes like this: give a man not food, but a fishing rod, so it can catch himself fish in the future) And don't come now with: you are doing a sadistic experiment here ;-) )
Another thought: while observing it the sounds of the birds outside seemed dangerous (the weather became today colder and it felt like a wasp now would be more an easy target, since other animals would not leave so far from their hive)
Don't hear a sound anymore, but I won't fall for that like yesterday :-) Let's wait for tomorrow...
