Bigger and Braver

The Dolichovespula media nest on my eaves has come on a treat, with a constant stream of workers entering with food for the young or wood pulp for the nest.

In a quest for clearer pictures I cautiously opened the transom window alongside it and poked the lens to within about 9 inches! So far so good, they haven't shown any anxiety or aggression, yet...





My next quest is to get decent pics of workers arriving in flight with food...
