New video to come, Hornets very active, filming now!
Thanks to Gaina for the idea to use video as a way of gaining better insight to what the Hornets are doing with the Hops plant. The first part its optical zoom, then it goes to digital zoom. The camera used is a Canon PowerShot SX200 this is a stills camera with built in video, so don't expect broadcast quality. Watch for the Ant part way through, who walks by the Hornet who in tun appears to lift its leg to let the Ant go by.
Keep the support for Hornets coming! Footage taken 26.09.09 at 1000hrs, dull here in North Somerset at the moment, though mild not cold, so fair amount of Hornet activity in the garden.
