Things I Won’t Do In Pursuit of My Passion

I went back to visit the iris stands (more about that soon), and as I was examining and admiring flowers, something flew past my face. Looking up, I spotted this.

That’s a nest, with two bald-faced hornets (Dolichovespula maculata) entering. It was all I could do to get the camera up for a really quick shot before getting the heck away from there.
