June 14 2005 don't mess with with momma

We've all heard of the instinctive ferocity of a mother bear protecting her cubs.

I suspect that if calculated a fight per milligram ratio the ursine moms would fill into second place when pitted against this little nest tender.

This one didn't take it's hyper-vigilant little poly-faceted eyes off of me.
Unlike bees they can sting you again and again until you get the message...leave, please!

Not as sharp as it could be. Tripod extended all the way up to the eaves outside my kitchen.

1 second, f/13 , Nikkor 300f4 Kenko tubes. Flash at -4/3 Ev. rear curtain

Nikon D2x
1s f/13.0 at 300.0mm iso800 with Flash full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

Nice close-up work. Dangerous, too.
