    Amazing capture Chuck and this close to a Bald-faced hornet is close enough, I’ve been stung by one of these critters and it really hurts. This interaction between the two hornets is interesting (and a very fortunate capture) do you know what it was about?

  • Thanks for the Comment, Bryan The hornets were fighting over the best place to be on the hummingbird feeder. I have a whole series of shots of them fighting on the feeder and flying around it. The hummer would not even come in to feed with them on the feeder that’s why I raised the shutter speed so high to get the hornets flying… It worked out great…
