Head on...

By ladynewbury
I took this hornet image with my 'handbag' camera while on holiday in France 2011.
I can't remember if it was dead...alive...or stunned 😳 whichever, I find them a bit scary close up. A friend of ours trod on one with bare feet...it put her in hospital!

I am more than pleased with all the V's & C's today, and especially pleased to receive UA's from Mike (Mike9005), Ron (RSK), Les (Les_Cornwall, Sue (Sue118), Jukka (Kuvailija) & Carol (CanonCarol). PM's sent. Pam
