A hornet peeks out from its nest on an Edmonton resident’s front porch on July 30, 2009. Wasp Control Non-Chemical offers a removal service that uses a vacuum instead of pesticides to get rid of hornets and wasps.  (Ryan Jackson / Edmonton Journal).  Watch the VIDEO

I bought a set of Kenko extension tubes last year but have only really used them for portraits so far. Today I finally got to use them for an insect. I used a 70-200mm f2.8 IS lens with a 12mm and 20mm extension tube on it. I used two flashes and shot at f22 so that I would have enough depth of field for the wasp to be in focus. Also note that this is a HUGE crop. I didn’t want to get too close to these little stingers :)
