Views from the Home Farm - The Hornet Nest

When I took this picture the hornets were no longer there; it being late fall. But they were bees to avoid; they don't give up the chase. Yet I remember one summer up above our childhood swing on the large old maple tree was an active hornets nest. We still swung; just not too high.

This picture reminds me of the killer bees that were once outside my house. They don't even make hornets! They just surround the queen...it was incredibly hilarious when the local news showed up at our house, and we had caution tapes on the front lawn :)

That does sound funny. I take it you didn't get stung.
