At long last the twain have met¹ - Distant cousins, with similar interests, around the same table (new tab, 42 seconds) ;-)
The venue was a flowering ivy, one of their favourite haunts at a time of the year (late November) when other food sources are thin on the ground.
At first glance, the two hornets in my montage may appear to be similar in size. However, for the second photo I was slightly closer to the flower cluster thus making the European hornet the larger of the two. Everything is relative. And size is SO important! (ツ)
The European queen is twice as big as her Asian counterpart (see below). Life is so unfair. :-(
View in lightbox, and then zoom in for greater detail.
The gear! (new tab) - Shh!!! Mum's the word!
Take care and many thanks for calling,

Boats moored for the night, sunset on the lake.
East Lake is one of the twin lakes that occupy part of the Newberry Crater or caldera in Central Oregon. It is located in the Deschutes National Forest near the city of La Pine. The caldera was formed over 500,000 years ago from volcanic eruptions. East Lake's water comes from snow melt, rain fall, and hot springs only. The average depth is 67 feet (20 m), 180 feet (55 m) at the deepest point, and covers 1,044 acres (4.2 km2). East Lake is about 50 feet (15 m) higher in elevation and is to the east of its twin, Paulina Lake.
All is quite as the tide ebbs at mid-night in a remote part of East Greenland. In the far right distance icebergs that have become grounded in a narrow channel can be seen.

This beach is my beach, Cromer East. It has lots of sand and rock, the latter ranging from tiny pebbles to football-sized door stops. While there are a few sandcastles, there are a lot of rock sculptures. People on the beach pile up rocks into various shapes. The ones I like the best are statues that are knocked down by the sea in due course. There were none of these yesterday, so I settled for an average mound with a spectacular backdrop. In the background, there are the iconic beach huts. The blurry people are my sisters sitting by my beach hut, wondering what I am doing.
Although similar shots have been taken a million times, I like this one. The light of the setting sun is nicely reflected on the high-rises along the FDR. Brings up all the good memories of NYC.
It was pretty warm that night, but periods of rain too. It was dash for the car, wait, and try again. This is a view above the FDR - which flanks the East River.
Today started out beautifully sunny and ended up a little chilly, windy and overcast. And for once I am glad it did. This is one of my favourite scenes, and one of the first I ever photographed when I visited Nova Scotia as a tourist, I have photographed it several times since, but you won't find it in my stream as the images were all terrible. Not even compensating with textures helped them. Previously, I have always tried to capture it in sunlight, so lesson learned today. This is the best shot I have ever achieved here. I just wish the red shed was still all red as it once was and not half boarded up.
In the spring of 1946 these boat sheds were witness to a remarkable scene: a long line of brand new wooden Bluenose sloops sliding down a set of rails into the bay. Twelve yachts had been ordered from John H. Barkhouse in the initial group, and work proceeded on the first of these in parallel. They were completed around the same time and launched in a group.

My sister Jan and I visited East Beach Shoeburyness Essex early this morning, only to find a very dull,misty, cold Thames Estuary, the light was awful so sadly the photography was limited.
Flocks of Knot (The second largest Calidris Sandpiper) were putting on some amazing flight patterns.

La journée s'annonçait mal! Arrivées à destination sur une falaise, on n'y voyait pas grand chose malgré une météo qui nous promettait du soleil!... Notre optimisme a cependant été récompensé car peu de temps après notre arrivée, les nuages se sont enfuis! Of course!

Chrysler Trylons (2001) and Chrysler East (1952 w/ redux 1999) - NYC - Architect Philip Johnson for Chrysler Trylons and Re-cladding of Chrysler East (orig architect of Chrysler East Reinhard, Hofmeister & Walquist)
CHRYSLER EAST - 432-foot, 32-story modernist office building completed in 1952. Designed by Reinhard, Hofmeister & Walquist, it was originally clad in white brick, but was re-clad in 1999 to a design by Philip Johnson, consisting of a curtain wall of grey-green glass with thin aluminum mullions. Formerly known as the Calyon Building and the Kent Building, it is now part of a full-block complex with a single owner, anchored on the west by the Chrysler Building.
CHRYSLER TRYLONS - 2-story retail complex the two buildings of the Chrysler Center, completed in 2001 known as The Chrysler Trylons. Designed by Philip Johnson, it consists of an east and west section of two floors clad in grey granite blocks, joined in the middle by a jagged grouping of three steep glass pyramids. The shards are pinstriped by stainless-steel framing, and the glass is slightly blue-tinted, and the crazy angled are intended to reflect the top of the Chrysler Building. The intersecting three-sided pyramids reach 57 feet, 68 feet and 73 feet high, each differently angled.
This small Headland is known locally as East Newk, It is situated on the South Side of Flamborough Head near to South Landing.
Hoodoos take millions of years to form and stand 5 to 7 metres tall. Each hoodoo is a sandstone pillar resting on a thick base of shale that is capped by a large stone. Hoodoos are very fragile and can erode completely if their capstone is dislodged (in other words, no climbing allowed). The protected Hoodoos site is a guaranteed spot to see Hoodoos but smaller versions of these sandstone giants can be found all over the Badlands.

The Eastern Gate (Oostpoort) in Delft, an example of Brick Gothic northern European architecture, was built around 1400. Around 1510 the towers were enhanced with an additional octagonal floor and high spires. This is the only city gate remaining in Delft; the others were demolished in the 19th century. It currently serves as an art gallery and private residence.
From the the flat and somewhat bleak grasslands of northeastern Colorado pops up two plateaus of rock stone, the Pawnee Buttes.
