A Hive of Activity?

While my Korean friends tell me that these are bees, they look more like wasps to me. I found this volleyball-sized colony under a ledge on a memorial at the Seoul National Cemetery in Dongjak-gu. I was a little nervous about getting too close and so I took the shot with the zoom function and thus this image is a little out of focus.

I think the shot is just fine! I love the unique grooves on the hive, although I'm with you -- I wouldn't get too close! Also, they do look like bees to me. Just my two cents.

Thanks ptowngirl. The thing that most interested me when I saw this was the texture and colours of the hive itself. Cheers...
