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.
