 European hornet,

a bit slow since it had been inside the cottage for a while.
A moments rest and then he flew away.

  1. Great! I have a lot of respect of them – in the garden we have one extremely big hornet, doing it´s circles around the garden and trying to get in the window frame – since I got stung years ago on the leg (not her fault, she sat there and I didn´t noticed and moved the other leg over) – I will keep my distance!

  2. looks dangerous… do they live up in sweden? i think we don’t have them in switzerland, luckly.

    great makro shot!

  3. Fine close-up

  4. Beautiful color tones on the hornet! Glad you let it live. I also appreciate how it was isolated by itself on the screen before flying away outside. FWIW, I’ve been stung twice this year, before that it had been over 20 years (because I know you care 🙂

  5. What enchanting colour! Maybe just a disguise for its danger! Wonderful macro!!!
