Found these guys eating a piece of meat I left out. I was hoping to attract flies, but these guys showed up instead, along with ants.
Taken with my new Canon T2i with mp-e 65mm lens.
it is insane how amazing this are.
thanks for sharing!
ps. try rotting fish for flies.
I found a couple too this weekend... in my N. Alata
Nepenthes Outdoors in CA
I wish I had the $ for a nice lens.
I can't keep those away from my outside garden.
They seem to like live sphagnum.
Every time I water I have to dodge stinging insects.

You are much braver than I my friend. I'll do close ups of honey bees but none in the hornet/wasp family. Too aggressive for me.
I had been stung many times by these guys but had never had a reaction like this , Doctor told me any one can react like this at any given time in their life,
These are some great shots, but i hope your keeping your Epi-pen close.
@ the camera. That is an insane macro shot! Wow!
<Heli> How are you guys losing your hamatas?

Incredible shots! For attracting flies I put some fish (dead, of course) in a bucket of water and that gets tons of flies and also prevents the ants from eating it.
Find some Bald-Faced hornets to take pictures of. Those are pretty awesome too. Nice photos.
