At Least the Flowers Are Pretty by KatMagic Photography

This hornet on the pretty pale flowers didn’t look so intimidating as I walked up with my macro lens. I think this is a hornet, not sure I really want to know… wasn’t until I uploaded to my computer and viewed him in all his scary detail that I realized .. I am brave (I am not an insect fan) … prior to a macro lens entering my life….you could not have paid me to get near this fellow.
