Storyboard Text

  •  Hello, there! I'm Vespula, a now-wingless wasp. My colony kicked me out because I lost my wings taking some food from some red harvester ants. Since I can't fly up to my nest, I can't do anything. The ants ripped my wings off, but I guess I deserved it since I was stealing their seeds. Maybe they will be forgiving enough to take me in.
  • No matter how hard I try, I can't even get an inch of the ground!
  • Grunt!
  • In the end, they accepted me with open antenna.
  • Hey! There they are! I'll go talk to them.
  • There's that thieving wasp! Let's get her!
  • How can I convince them?
  • Wait! Stop! I just want to talk!
  • I know! I'll get them to take me to their leader!
  • So what do you want? All you need to know is that you stole our food and now you'll pay!
  • I'm sorry, but I was just helping my colony, just like you always help yours. Please let me speak to your leader.
  • Crack!
  • Now, that I'm in their nest, I'll ask about joining their colony.
  • I've heard you stole a sunflower seed from us. Do you know how many growing larvae a single seed can feed?
  • Ow, that was a hard seed!
  • I understand, but I was just helping my colony which kicked me out because I no longer have wings.
  • Even though you're a wasp, I guess it would be fine. As long as you work as hard as everyone else, it doesn't matter what you look like.
  • How about I pay that off the seed off in labor? If I do, I get to stay in your colony forever. Don't worry - I will do as much as any other ant.
  • Now, I forage with all of my step-sisters for my new family!
