Mating European hornets
Two European hornets (Dutch: hoornaar) were mating on an asphalt street. Although my photograph is poor of quality I like to share it, because I have seen this never before. After I photographed this couple, I removed them from the street to prevent them from overdriving by cars. Because my real camera was at home, this photograph was taken with my mobile phone.
The European hornet ''Vespa crabro'', commonly known simply as the "hornet", is the largest European eusocial wasp.
