A hornet (Vespa crabro) in front of the exit hole of her nest.

I hope you will enjoy the pics.

Cheers,

Stefan

Fab shots - love No.1 - the eyes are crazy - they look like wrap around sunglasses

Hi Dyane,

yes I like these hornets and I was lucky today to find their nest. Maybe it would be possible for me to make some more shots, hopefully also from flying hornets, in the next days. I hope nobody will destroy the nest, people are sometimes so stupid and ignorant.

Cheers,

Stefan

Very, very close. I hope the hornet recognises that you are a good guy and refrains from stinging you!
