f11, 1/200, ISO 100

The hornet was sitting on the side of the door frame on a damp cool morning. In fact rather like a bee hornets really do appear very sluggish in the mornings, apt to move in jerky circles as they try to move around and warm up. I'm also not sure, but I think they can't disconnect their wing muscles from their wings to let them move them to help warm up (some bees do this and you can hear it, but I didn't hear this hornet making any sounds even as he moved around later).

Any comments/crits welcome - thank you

A great many thanks to all - I certainly did not expect this shot to get such applause! Also not sure who gave it, but a great many thanks again for the person who awarded it a "Guest Editors Award"
