Hornet: Late survivor

This hornet seemed like it was really struggling to survive the cold weather... Found him sitting on the road and didn't seem able or willing to fly away. It did threaten my camera a bit, since it got REALLY in his face.

Fortunately I had a g7 with CHDK on it with me, which is pretty much terrible IQ compared to a dslr but it works well on macro stuff and fits in the pocket :)
