Wasps - Jamie Derkenne

Wasp nests had covered the entire wall on the south side of an old milk delivery shed near east Gresford in the Hunter Valley. It was a warm summer’s day. They were very active. Wasp are vicious, I have been strung many times by wasps from that party of the world. They make their nests always in the shade – underneath bridges, on south-facing walls, even on the south side of gates. This made taking the picture with my tiny digital camera all the more difficult, as I had to get very, very close to the subject.
