I almost walked right into this today. It was just 5 ft off the ground hanging in a tree and I was looking for a nice landscape shot and paying no attention to these critters.

Amazing shot Bob! The detail is incredible, but next time keep your distance and use your zoom :shock:.

Beautiful!!

Thanks Rose, I was suprised that the photo wasn't blurred from camera shake, I am a big chicken when it comes to stinging insects!:G I looked them up and I think they are black hornets.

I really like the detail of the paper hive. I don't normally get close enough to see all that detail.

Glad you did, without any consequences.
