|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|As I was walking the Columbia River Gorge Trail 400 I came across this Hornets nest laying on the ground. I couldn't find any trace of what may have knocked it off the tree it fell from so its mystery lingers on. The hive was about 2 feet from end to end and as you can see, was abuzz with the Hornets attempting to either repair the hive or extracate their eggs. Contrary to common belief the Hornets did not attack as I approached the hive, I was very slow moving towards it and setting up, they were just too busy in their labors to pay much attention to what I was doing or of my presence above them. I took this late in the day and under the trees under moist conditions so the light was very poor.|
