Vigilance

This hornets nest hangs about twenty feet overtop and to the right of a walkway I pass by often. Normally I step off into the roadway and quickly pass by. This day I stopped just a little longer to observe the hornets.

At first there was nothing but a dark hole, and then suddenly the antennae appeared and the eyes began to stare.

Amazing creatures they are, feared for their painful stings, they watched me as I watched them, thankful for the armistice they granted me, I took a few quick pics and got out of Dodge quickly (slang for ‘got out of there’).
