Vespa Mandarinia (or Asian Giant Hornet)

Vespa Mandarinia, Asian Giant Hornet

My wife found this beautiful hornet dead on the ground. He was huge but was already drying out by the time I photographed him because he was atop the fridge the whole day and I don’t know how long he had been dead when my wife found him.
