    Hey gang,
    Finally uploaded some shots from my CF card today. My 6 year old son's friend came over the other day and while he was coming in our front door he was stung by a yellow jacket wasp. I looked that day but couldn't find the nest. This morning I found the nest...it was conveniently located in our front door wreath. Of course we needed to exterminate, but I wanted to take a family shot before the after-math :lol: This is only one of the rare occasions that I would kill an insect or a nest of insects.
    Other shots are just random...enjoy.

    #1 (I used a tripod and a 580EX off camera master and 430EX slave with stofen diffusers)
