Bee Careful at "Tropical" Eastatoe Falls
Took a client to Eastatoe Falls the other day for a day of instruction on learning digital photography. We were greeted with nearly perfect conditions. While my fellow photographer was practicing, I managed to snap off this quick photo to take advantage of this great scene. The fog lingering in the top of the trees made this a must have photo. With recent rains and all the foliage being saturated it made it look like we were in a tropical rainforest.
But in terms of today's title, there is a very large wasp nest near the waterfall. An earlier visitor had been stung near the bridge of his nose. Ouch. As you walk up the entrance trail, the nest is just to the left as you make the left trail up to the falls. If you leave it alone you should be OK.

Amazing photo Reid! Watch out for those wasps!
