Hello friends, from my archives a wasp nest.

1/200s f/8.0 ISO1000 85mm (35mm eq:127mm).


A wasp is any insect of the order Hymenoptera and
suborder Apocrita that is neither a bee nor an ant.
Almost every pest insect species has at least one wasp
species that preys upon it or parasitizes it, making wasps
critically important in natural control of their numbers,
or natural biocontrol. Parasitic wasps are increasingly
used in agricultural pest control as they prey mostly
on pest insects and have little impact on crops.

Hello Asbed,
A nice shot of this hornets nest showing beautiful fall colors and sharp focus. Whenever I spot one of these in a tree I try to keep my distance and not get them mad. This particular nest appears to be fastened very securely between a number of sturdy branches. I like the overall composition and the exposure looks great.

Hello Asbed,
It's good to be back on TN. Thank you for the welcome message. :)
The picture of the wasp nest with a riot of colors on the back ground gives an impression of a painting. I have also seen one such wasp nest , but it was high up on the tree. This is the first time , I am seeing one at eye level.
Thanks and regards,
