Nasty

Boy I hate those things. They used to build nests above the door going into the pump house every year. I never got bit but it was close sometimes. Also had a hord of them nesting in my green house. Only a few this year and hopefully I got them all.

Photo's are beautiful. What lens did you use to get them? If I was going to try that, I've got a 70-300 macro that does macro on 300. To close to them for me but still you could get them pretty far off.
