Deep amongst the thistles I spotted this wasps nest, with a number of inhabitants, and gingerly managed a couple of images before one of the members decided I was getting too close and shooed me off with a sting!
Very interesting shot Carol! I can see the babies inside! Is it the babies?
Anyway they look great! Hope you haven't got a reaction from the sting...
Two cracking detailed captures. I think the sting was worth it but then I am not the one on the receiving end.
Wow, two brilliant an unusual shots Carol, well done you for being brave enough to risk a sting, I don't think I would have hung around long enough to get even 1 shot.
These are amazing Carol.....very brave of you and sorry to hear you got stung in the process....never seen this before so thanks for sharing! John
Sorry you got stung Carol, but an amazing set..Lin
Brilliant images Carol
Two stunning, absolutely remarkable shots. Well done you for getting them.
I can't say they were well worth the sting because I have never had a wasp sting in my life, but I said that about bee stings until a couple of years ago - ouch!
Stunning! Great work for your art. Well captured.
Hope you don't have any after effects from the sting - they look like vicious types.
Great pictures, Carol.
A very interesting and well captured pair of images Carol. Each one full of great colour and detail. Thanks for sharing.
I hope that the sting won't put you off capturing many more superb images.
Excellent captures Carol, great detail in both,
But worth the sting? Not so sure!
Bee stings are bad enough , cannot imagine how sore a wasp sting must be...great shots though Carol
Very brave of you to approach that close, but a great find: V 2 for me as the detail is so crisp.
I have had 3 wasp stings and they were quite horrendous, so I'd not have tried what you did.
Nice fined Carol,2 super images.
Wonderful images of these dangerous wasps, Carol!
Two brilliant shots Carol, V2 is my favourite, the detail is so sharp
First you brave the thistles then the wasps. Worth it though Carol to get these images.
Two super images V2 for me. Ted.
V2 for me Carol the detail is much clearer two brave captures hope the sting has not caused any issues know you you will be heading back for more captures
Super captures. Well done.
I didn't know they nested so exposed.
Great shots. Such a small nest compared with those I've seen over here. Must be a different type of wasp.
You are a brave soul!
This is a wonderful action shot of their industrious nature.
2 super captures Carol, sorry to hear that one of the inhbitants took offence at you takeing piccies, hope you are OK.
Two cracking close up shots Carol, i hope your ok after the sting, a friend of mine ended up in hospital after a wasp sting he reacted badly to it. He was replacing some roof tiles and underneath them was a wasps nest lol, his face and neck really swelled up and i think they were worried it would close off his airways
Got stung eh?! What we have to put up with to get images!! Two good 'uns here, Carol, and go for V2 as my fave
Hope your OK after the sting Carol. These are both superb, but V2 has the edge for me.
We have to suffer for our art, Carol - great shots, worth the effort.
I do hope you are ok Carol after this cracking shot. You were lucky if you got away with just one sting.
Thank you for your User Award today. It was extremely kind of you and I am thrilled to bits as I love these Red Squirrels.
Beginnings of a colony there! Well captured detail
Super images Carol,hope you are ok after the sting,
Amazing detailed shots Carol & you are very brave;
I feel frightened just looking at your images.
Fascinating capture, Carol
Ouch suffering for your art!
I love the honeycomb - one of life's marvellous mysteries!

There is always a sting in the tail to a good photo
Sorry Carol, could not resist
Heavy showers today, but still warm and humid
Excellent ! - Actually never seen anything as good from this subject ! And rather dangerous too . Hope that you are not allergic to those stings ?! --- Jukka.
