This Bald-faced Hornet is a common sight here in TN in the summer. I have never had a problem with them, unlike the Red Wasps that invade my garage and dive-bomb my head when I walk out the door!  I am amazed at the beautiful pattern of black and yellow that the hornet has, and photograph them constantly in an effort to learn more about them.  They are not a true hornet, by the way, but a yellow jacket.  I do NOT understand the classifications of bugs at all!   Anyway, this sketch was done with some ballpoint pen, and color inks.  I used a 30% cool grey Copic pen for the shadows.
