These Hornets are bees of prey. This one only stopping for lunch while hanging inverted. You can barely see the small insect it was snacking on. Wish I had gotten closer but was chicken. No time for tripod.

That's what's important is using what we have and learning it well. It's a long journey. Thank for commenting.
