Competition 2023 – Photography – 18 and over – Pete Burford – (3) European Hornet

By Pete Burford

A European hornet I found resting from the Rain in late October, they are more docile due to low temperatures which means you are able to get shots of them, I picked this one up onto a stick and took the shots that I need before leaving it back by the Hornets nest.
