found this little brute napping on my kitchen curtain this afternoon, and figured i'd give it a try, since i haven't had much chance to shoot bugs...

Nice shots. The second one is really clear for using digital zoom.My usual experience with Yellow Jackets is trying to get away. They seem to like to sting me.

Squirl, great shots :-).If you don't mind me asking, what noise removal software are you using? That second shot using digital zoom came out so clear andshows great detail!!!! With my previous use of digital zoom, the shots came out with quite a lot of noise.

Nice shots!

Yellow Jackets make a terrific chowder!

Yellow Jacket Chowder
2 bunches celery, chopped
1 1/2 pounds onions, chopped
6 pounds red potatoes, diced
26 Yellow Jackets with juice
3 T dried thyme
1 T dried oregano
2 T dried basil
1 cup fish bouillon
2 T white pepper
3 pounds butter
6 cups flour
6 cloves garlic
1 gallon 2% milk (for a richer chowder you can use half and half)

Combine celery, onions, potatoes, yellow jackets, thyme, oregano, basil, bouillon, and pepper; cook 30-45 minutes until vegetables and potatoes are soft.

Melt butter and add flour and garlic, stir constantly until slightly brown. Combine with vegetable mixture and add milk. Stir well and cook for 10 minutes.
