Photography 101: Swarm

Swarm: to fly off together in a group, as bees; to move about in great numbers, as things or persons.




I just have the beginning of a swarm here. Did not want to see them all!  A nest of bald face hornets next to my garage door last August, they are very aggressive and can sting multiple times. The building of the nest is something that goes on the whole day, every day. These are all layers on layers starting on the top, going down and repeat, very impressive. Every 2 days there was a new layer.
