Thanks man! Yeah, figured it was insect-related. See them all the time.

You eat them and then feel awesome. Obviously.

Not sure about the hornet, but the plant is aegopodium podagraria, aka Bishop's Weed, an edible and medicinal invasive. Exciting? Yes.

Yeah, I agree. I work as a gardener and some people I've worked with have called it "bishop's weed", which is cool and sort of whimsical, but I'm not sure what it is. I prefer to do this rather than look it up, though. Getting an ID is like Christmas :)

That sounds right. The leaf is definitely nightshade-like, and the pictures look spot-on. Thanks FD!
