15 Jun 19 Been a long time since I did a Saturday Night Special, so I thought I would do one with a subject that might fit the title. After spraying the nest with a brand of hornet & wasp killer that foamed over the entire object I went inside to avoid any little angry critters I might have missed. I was not prepared for how the material worked and when I looked again a couple hours later was quite surprised to see that the paper "shell" had been basically dissolved and that just the comb interior remained. That was rather interesting and made for a nice subject. A couple of the creative editions are my favorite but I think you need to see the real thing first. Just may share two of the creative versions upon our return for those of you who like triptychs although I'll admit these would make for a most unusual triptych.
