Not just any hornet - this impressive bee-eating specialist has evolved to annihilate honey bee colonies on the Chinese island of Hainan. The bees are mostly defenceless but the endemic species have some tricks up their sleeves to counter the onslaught. Bizarrely enough the bees are also assisted by a very rare species of plant in one of nature's surprising twists.
