This past summer I was washing my deck preparing it for another coat of stain. Unaware there was a yellow jackets nest under the top railing I shot it with water from my garden hose. At first I wasn't going to bother taking a picture because I've already got macro shots of these insects but for some reason I couldn't resist. I was surprised when looking through the viewfinder and saw this one going all around the nest, sucking up water into its mouth and then walking to the bottom of the nest to deposit the water onto the ground.

In my opinion the first image is a bit too dark so I lightened it up and hope this one looks better.

Thanks all for taking the time to look and comment. With macro it's always great when one is fortunate enough to catch the critters in an act that is unexpected.
