How little bees take on enormous hornets

I wrote a comic about Japanese Honeybees and how they combat Japanese Giant Hornets.

This is a chapter from my book, The Terrible and Wonderful Reasons Why I Run Long Distances. This comic was originally featured on NPR via Robert Krulwich's blog, Krulwich Wonders, and I'm reposting it here as well.
