Very nicely over-saturated photo, likely nicer looking than the reality :-)
sehr schöner Reiher, viele Grüße, Karl

Hi Herb :) yes this hive, estimated 2000-3000 strong, of honey bees was quite tricky to remove as they were hunkered in towards the rear of our old mailbox (the new one is that green pole top right of image). The bee removal guy did take a while and got approximately 3/4 of them relocated once the Queen and honeycomb was removed. Quite a few remained and kept trying to find the rest of their fellow worker bees for 3 or 4 days, I had to totally dis-assemble the brickwork afterwards and made a garden out of it, will take some pics and post :) And I know what you mean about the wasps, especially the European version, they are killing off many native species here and nest all over the place. I kill off around 3 wasp nests per year as we have a large swimming pool here and they gather for the water. I was attacked when around 13 yrs old by a swarm of European Wasps, rode through them on my pushy and they chased me inside a house, lucky a mate slammed the fly wire door shut.
Thank you Angelika & Nadia for your kind comments
Très belle capture! on dirait un sol lunaire!
