The detail you capture in these insect shots is always so good, Carol: another excellent set and if I had to choose a favourite it would be between V 2 and 4. I suppose they can give you quite a nasty sting!

Looks dangerous, never seen a hornet, not even a small one!
Good work as always Carol,
2 Nov 2010 10:31PM
Cracking set, Carol, I like hornets, but they are much scarcer here where I live than wasps, and they don't sit on sticks allowing themselves to be photographed either! Wink Super images.
