Hungry Hornet

Today was a great day for photographing insects. There’s a field of cockscomb maintained by a nursery down the road from me. Being extra careful not to trample any plants, I was able to photograph dozens of butterflies, moths, bees and other insects. Sadly, the monarchs have yet to make an appearance. When they do, I’ll be out there to capture them on film! Happily, the field of cockscomb was teaming with life, so I’ll be busy downloading and cropping photos for the next few hours (or days?) Here’s a hungry hornet. Keep your eyes on this space for more beautiful insects!

I’m calling this guy a hornet, but I honestly don’t know exactly what kind of bee this really is.
One can still clearly discern that this fella’s wings have undergone a lot of wear and tear.
