Battle suit - check (Honey, does this outfit make me look fat?)

Weapons - check

Secure all civilian personnel safely away from battlefield - check

Communicate to all other military personnel as to their duty status, positions and backup procedure should their assistance be needed - check
Locate enemy stronghold - check

Locate exact location of enemy headquarters - check

Report - Mission accomplished. Enemy has been eliminated.

There were actually 2 separate nests in 2 different shelters. And I have to admit that I took the picture of the nest AFTER I had killed the hornets. Ok, call me chicken. Even though I was all geared up in the bug suit I wasn't going to stick my head in there to take a picture while they were still alive. I waited long after the buzzing stopped. But I am getting better - at least I remembered the camera!

Lol - that definitely looks like war over there! I'd be a chicken too - I would've taken the photograph as soon as I knew I had the enemy "under control"!
