Angry Hornet Fights Off Ants

Occurred on July 2022 / Dohr, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

Info from Licensor: Can insects get angry? If you look at this video, the thought is very obvious. Viewed at normal speed, humans are hardly able to grasp what is actually happening. The slow-motion footage, on the other hand, presents fascinating details: when the food source of hornets is besieged by ants, they don't seem to enjoy it at all. Some of these giants virtually fly into a rage at the sight of the ants, which are tiny in comparison. Obviously, the ants are extremely annoying to them; one hornet even rolls over with blind rage when it is pushed. Is that anthropomorphized now? Do we tend to interpret too much into such recordings?
