Shadows


While capturing autumn foliage shots I chanced upon this shadow


Yellow Jackets are far from the top of my most favorite creatures list. I have been known to spray entire nest of them when they decide to build somewhere not to my liking.

On this day, with the Yellow Jacket posing no threat, I was pleased to catch her shadow before she hurried along her way.

Great shot Salty. Not wild about yellow jackets either but their shadow is perfect on the yellow leaf. A unique picture.

Yellow Jackets are famous around here for seeking out people to sting and bite pets on the most tender parts. There is a story behind them and why they do this and it surprised me.

Nice shot Salty.

What a creative set-up for a picture! The whole photo is very neat, the yellow, the shadow, the out-of-focus green leaf in the background. Love it :)
