In your face

I was photographing hoverflies feeding on Ivy earlier this week when a ruddy great Hornet buzzed in. I took the opportunity to take a few macro shots as it preoccupied itself feeding on pollen. With my face just inches from the stripy beast I beat a startled retreat backwards when the insect grabbed a hoverfly with lightning speed and a crack of its jaws. After that I gave it a healthy circumference using a longer lens!
