    At least you could have hit it with a stick a couple of times
    first so we could see some action !!!

    It's plenty sharp.

    Truly a bizarre sight. You're braver (or more foolhardy) than I.

    I wish though, that the flash had been off the camera, and it wasn't
    overexposed.

    telephoto.

    Just a tip; If you shoot with flash from a longer distance, the light
    fall-off with distance is reduced.

    Why would he want that for this shot? IMO, the nest is lit evenly and
    the dark background frames the nest well.

    Actually, it was taken on a tripod. I still don't see what you are seeing in
    the perceived lack of sharpness. But I'll go out and get some pics of it
    tomorrow when I have more light and we'll see if that helps.

    CALL FOR THE PRONOUN POLICE!!!!

    "I" can not approach a hornet's nest quite closely regardless of the
    time of day. Fear of pain is a remarkable deterrent. "You" may if you
    wish to. In "my" photos this nest would have been completely
    unrecognizable due to camera shake, even on a tripod. "I" don't even
    like to approach mosquitoes if they are still alive. For that matter, do
    sparrows bite? :o)

    Well, I had to do it once, many years ago, when I found a hronets nest
    in a holly tree right behind my house (I was living in New Jersey). At
    5:30am or so one morning, the hornets met an untimely death :-)

    This photo is very sharp (I'm taking about the portions of the picture
    that are in focus, of course).
     

    The sharpness of this photo is beyond any gains that can be achieved by
    use of a tripod. The only way to improve its sharpness is to use better
    lens and/or larger/more resolving CCD, whatever the bottleneck is in
    this case.
     

    No, that alone won't make any noticeable difference.
