[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a typical nest (the start) of a wasp hanging under a chair on my balcony. Once finished, the diameter can be up to 30 cm (12 inches). After having spotted this I was no sure it was the best place anymore. Brrrrrr

*Original photo is upside-down with insect “hanging”.

Hi Max,
o yes, brrrrr, this one is looking a little dangerous, special when you come too near to the nest. I hopy it don't stink you, wasps are a little agressive - this one look like, because of the extreme yellow colour. A wonderful shot, I like it. You were very brave, also as I were this weekend with my hornet, perhaps you like to have a look?
A warm welcome here at TrekNature, I'm waiting for your next photos, bye

Hi Max!
Welcome to TN :)
It's very interesting post to start with.
Photo is very good, has nice colours and composition. It's a bit unsharp, but all details are well visible and that's matters.
I like the photo very much.
