A Hornet uses our Teak garden furniture as a source for his nest building material

Sunny day in the garden so out comes the macro.  I use the Canon 5D MkII together with a 100mm Canon prime macro lens (non image-stabilised) and a Canon ring-flash unit for all my macro work.  Here we see a Hornet chomping away at our Teak garden furniture to get the wood pulp for his nest building exploits – just hope he’s not set up home in our roof (there’s at least one old nest up there).  Second macro was a Bee taking an obliging pose on a leaf 🙂
