About Today’s Photo:

Taking an afternoon tour of our property with camera in hand, I was surprised to find more than a dozen bald-faced hornets working the remaining bug bane blossoms in our ornamental garden. The hornets (wasps technically and not true hornets) were pretty logy—almost drunken it seemed—and didn’t mind me getting in close with my macro lens.

Panasonic GX8, Olympus 60mm macro lens, ISO 1600, f/8, 1/125″ exposure.
