Time for a break from butterflies for a while. There are quite a number of hornets around at present, this beastie seemed to be staring me out, as if waiting for an opportunity to sting me.
Crikey - I don't know how you managed to capture that threat, Carol.
Almost like a stop motion film.
These are superb captures Carol !! Living dangerously these days I perceive Amazing photography here
Very beautiful macro shots for me v1 is the winner.
Definitely giving you the evil eye there Carol, superb close-ups. Hornets always look to me as if they have been designed to be efficient killing machines, they are sleek and dangerous looking beasts.
Who needs science fiction when nature provides. Wonderful shot Carol
These are stunning close up images, Carol!
He does look threatening in V1!!!
1 is great, 2 is blurry, 3 is brilliant!
Brilliantly caught - I always feel Hornets are the gentle giants of the wasp family. They seem to realise their size alone gives them some kind of protection!
Wow what a capture and that expression say's it all.
Well captured images Carol, Hornets are not easy to
photographin more ways than one
V1 for me Carol, super macro,
scary creature! Great set. ( Mine looks a bit like one of yours today !!) gx
your title with V1 really made me laugh!
Not a favourite insect for me, although they are few and far between over here, but what superb shots, esp. the detail in V 1 and 3.
Excellent close-up work, Carol.
A canny pair of nashers on this one Carol!! Great set of images!!
Beautiful and brave captures of this rather dangerous insect, Carol !
Great captures, V3
Stunningly close Carol !!!
Three Stunning images carol.
Does look like he's eyeing you up in V1, Carol! Excellent close-ups as usual, and go for V3 as my fave - it looks less intimidating in that shot!
Does look rather menacing Carol
Great shots, Carol, V3 is the winner for me.
Superb macros Carol with V3 my favourite.
Excellent macros especially V1. I bet it packs a sting. paul
Strangely, not as scary looking as wasps for me. 1 & 3 are very well done, Carol. Just how close are you?
I give them a wide berth....got my leg into one of their nests once....not a pleasant encounter
Three macro monsters munching menacingly
V1 is excellent Carol. These can be so annoying but make a great set.......Sandy
Brilliant detail in these shots, Carol. V1 runs away with my vote today!
V1 then V 3 for me Carol definitely pushing yer luck here excellent detail
Another set of stunning close ups Carol..Lin
You're very brave Carol - v1 is my fave.
We call it Potter Wasp, Great.
Great macro work, as always. Never met a Hornet and happy enough to keep it that way!!
You've been well spotted. Top shots.
Great macro shots Carol, excellent detail.
Gosh aren't you brave; I would be scared stiff to be that close! (Bad memories from childhood in our attic)
Splendid scary shots.
absolutely amazing shots especially v1
excellent set of shots Carol.
Rather you than me Carol
Seems like we have just commenced our Indian summer over here
Been in the +20's today
Blimey what a great set absolutely amazing
Versions 1 and 3 really sharp
V1 and v3 are top quality Carol, he'd have scared the living daylights out of the big wuss that is the Tomcat!
Top notch again Carol, sorry ive missed your shots lately.
V1 is my favourite, Carol. So that's what these nasties look like close up. I've never got close enough!
V1 for me - Wow - stunning.
WOW -- what an amazing macro!
Wow he does look evil, you are very brave getting those shots, my dad was stung years ago he ended up in hospital to get the sting cut out
I love watching hornets.. if you move slowly and don't upset them the are fine.
great shots Carol!
still love this one lol
Oh My! A "Beast"! Like them all! Full view in V3...
Beautiful set of images love em
