I'd say the BEST time to use a zoom!Really great shot.
Great shot and so brave to get anywhere near it. I cannot stand to get stung.
That picture reminds me of a trip 3-4 years ago when I went to TN to visit my younger brother. He wasn't home when I got down there so I sit around for a little while and here he comes with a big hornets nest. He had went out and cut the limb that it was on (with the hornets still in it) and brought it home. I could still see a few hornets in it.When we were kids and found a hornets nest we always got stung because we would throw rocks at it until we tore the nest down.
I've stirred up a few of these in my time Dot ;o)
Great picture Dot, but I can say from experience they are not something you want to sting you. Pappy
Wow, that's great. Zoom is good.
Good time to use the zoom, indeed!Here's another Hornet!
That is a very good shot! It must be really dangerous to capture that even with a zoom. :) Thanks!AlexanderAlex's World! - http://www.kakinan.com/alex
WOW! Fabulous shot! Definitely time for the zoom on this one!
Dot: I don't want to be very close to those paper wasps. They are mean buggers. Very nice capture from a distance.
Oh. YES, definitely keep your distance!
The one time not to get near bees/hornets etc is when the weather is changing--as in a storm coming in. They are definitely meaner then. Ask me how I know!
WOW! What a shot! Yes, goood time for lots of zoooooooooooooom. :-)Miss Mari-NanciSmilnsighPhotos-City-Mine
Dot!This is a great shot! I've always been fascinated with these things. I love coming across such things to look at and get pictures of!!Junie
Good idea!! That shot is awesome.
Hey Dot , is it not dangerous to be that close or did you use the zoom?Fantastic photo.
Very nice close up shot. My husbands line of work brings him in contact with a lot of these (he's a builder. He used to get stung quite often, until he learned not to swat at them..
It's amazing how much those little buggers get done by continually plugging away at their tasks! Not me... Not today, anyway... I need a nap. (yawn)
Nothing hurts worse than a hornet sting. To me anyway. Living in the country, we have a lot of those mean bees around.That is such a good picture.
WOW! Scary. Hornets scare the bejeebers out of me. Great capture... hope you zoomed a bunch!
Ooh eeer!!! Thanks goodness for the zoom!
Egads... we have a couple of these on the property and I don't like 'em. I try to stay as far away as possible!! Definitely a zoom photo for sure!
After using the zoom lens, you could follow up with a can of "RAID"
Dot,So good to be able to visit with you again....Hornet stings are very painful as I can attest to having been stung twice...I like the pictures of the yellow coreopsis....I grow it.....
Great zoom job. Don't get too close! Just the look of those things scare me. Great photo.
Fantastic shot, but YIKES! Definitely smart to use that zoom lens.
Wow, thats some photo.
Great shot - and that is a big nest. I think your brave to get that picture, even with a zoom.
What an interesting shape, you certainly wouldn't want to get too close.
A daring photo!! I would be hesitant to even try taking this even with a telephoto lens!! A wonderful shot!!!
Wow, I've never seen a hornet. Glad it was you, and not me.
That is a GREAT shot. I would have used my zoom for that one too.
An even better time to use the wasp killer spray! :)
hehe, yup, macro would not be my first choice here either! But it is a stunning pic, almost has an abstract art quality about it.
With the beginning of summer comes the blooming of trees, gardens and flowers, which in turn attracts bees and wasps of all kinds. But that is not the end of the worry of a sting. Many stings take place during the fall months. Reason being, bees and wasps are cold blooded insects and they linger around people and pets in order to absorb the body heat, therefore increasing the chances of getting stung for both. Last week, I witnessed a 4 year old girl with her hand and forearm swollen to her elbow, from a wasp sting that she received to her fingertip the day before. The sight of her hand and arm brought tears to my eyes because I knew that if she had had Baker's Venom Cleanser available when see was stung, none of her discomfort would have elevated to that extreme point of swelling and discomfort. Our web site www.BeeStingCure.com has under gone some new additions worth taking a look at. Old news commentary video footage from 1988 has been added toYouTube.com/BeeStingCure and the link is available at our site.
