The Hive!

I have been watching this hive of Common Paper Wasp (Polistes dominulus), Interesting creatures. Normally these wasps are not all that agressive which allowed my good macro-photography.

Common Paper Wasp (Polistes dominulus), Pentax *istD, SMC Pentax-M 50mm f:4 Macro lens, hand-held. Closer shots with a Pentax 2X teleconverter added. Shallow Depth of Field is because my working distance was 2.5″ (63mm) from the front of the lens. All shot @ f:11.
