Hubby and I stayed quite a distance way from this thing today during our bike ride.

To all of you wonderful photographers that have I have met or have contact with... all of you are a wonderful inspiration to me!

That really IS some hive. The work that has gone into that is amazing, and I'd be fascinated if I came across that, with my inquisitive nature almost certainly landing me in trouble! Nicely captured, Julie. I hope you are enjoying a very pleasant weekend.

@SOUL AFLAME: Soul, I was really wanting a closer shot but I was glad I had the lens in hand that I did and realized it was still active! A nice distance was kept for sure, but it was so cool! Have a great weekend yourself! (it is a rainy dreary day here today :(

What a work of art this is. If you'd told me you made it out of Papier-mâché, I would have believed you.

@Judy aka [email protected]: Thanks Judy, yes it sure was pretty cool! Wish I could take the credit for building it but, I am not quite that talented hehe. THanks for your comment!

I dont blame you staying well away from it but it sure is a cool looking hive such interesting patterns

@JJ: I saw something fly in and out and figured that it was still active so stayed far away from it lol. Isn't it just too cool???
