I was delighted to see a dragonfly on the 17th October, but blown away by this monstrous insect.

I’m guessing it’s a hornet, and it looks far more fearsome than many wasps and bees which were also circulating around this bush.

Somehow I felt bold enough to stick my camera within 18 inches and snap away.

I’m pleased with the results, and I wasn’t expecting trouble despite the creature’s menacing apperance.
