I haven't posted here for ages! For that matter I haven't done much photography for ages. I didn't lose interest, life just got a bit too busy.
But spring is here and its time to break out the camera gear and start shooting some bugs. In the meantime I've been going through my files and came accross this picture of a bald-faced hornet (Dolichovespula maculata) that I shot last summer. I love the face on this beast...and the way these wasps rest with their front legs off the ground.

Cheers,

very nice pic, thanks for sharing
man amazing quality....also how close were you to that thing lol
Very nice. I wouldn't want to see a rear end shot up close and personal, though :)

That is a pretty cool shot!
Thanks all! The front of my lens would have been about 4 inches from the wasp. Lots of working room! :icon_smil

I have to admit, I have been stung many times, mainly for getting too close to hives. But they are just so damn interesting to watch!
