Here is what I did on Friday the 16th of November during my 18C lunch-break Smile PLEASE Check all 3 pictures
1
-You look merry, mate..
well there are FREE drinks at the old mirabelle tree

2 -good to have 6 legs to stand on

3- should have taken more water with it Smile

the morning frost makes the mirabelles drop on a container.. but it also makes them ferment TongueTongue Plum dropping weather Smile so the local hornets came all in for a drink!!

Nice storyline here, Annette, and if that's fermented juices they're getting then it might explain the apparent collapse of the left hand wasp in V 3.
Great macro work and the detail is excellent.
A most enjoyable set.

Quite happy with the three thank you Annette, I have a couple of shots of a European Hornet that paid us a visit!, He was nearly 4 cm long with red and yellow stripes, people fuss about them but generally they are less of a problem than wasps who are a nuisance!, never kill one as when dying they give off a hormone this will alert the rest of the nest to attack! worth remembering lol. three good shots, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Nasty little blighter's if you get stung, but very docile to handle if you know what you're doing, much prefer a hornet than a wasp to work with, wasps are unpredictable, hornet's give you plenty of warning......Good images Annette.
