Although I caught her on this shrub, most of her time she spends on my deck stair post.
From this vantage point, she has a great view of the bees as they come and go. She didn't like my presence and although she didn't sting me, she dive bombed my hair as she did the day before. It worked. I moved.
Although I didn't get a shot of it, I saw a bald-faced hornet struggling with a bee. The hornet finally won the battle and carried the still-fighting bee off to feed its family.
I think I've gotten a photo of the bald-faced hornet in its cannabalistic glory every year so I'll have to watch over the next few days for another opportunity to capture its image.
