A Hemingway-esque study on man's eternal struggle with Nature
Carpenter Bees are plentiful and destructive around The Compound. These harmful pests bore holes in the unpainted surfaces of both hovel and chicken coop, causing untold damage and misery. These dangerous insects must be approached with extreme caution and cunning.
In this dramatic, never-before-seen video, with only the help of the staff cameraman, I combine the skills of ancient aboriginal blow-gun hunters with the stalwart, audacious bravery of Marlin Perkins to capture one of these elusive and insidious creatures alive and unharmed. All done at great peril with little regard for my own safety.
