While bush hogging for a customer recently, members of Gin's Lawn Mowing service, Staunton, witnessed this hornet's nest in a field. The nest measured only 6-8 inches off the ground and was about 1-1.5 feet around.

I found this article interesting. When I was a child my Father and I would be out in the woods, or driving some where. We would check where the hornets nest were located. My father would predict what the winter should be. The higher the nest a bad winter, The lower the nest a milder winter. When I read this article It brought back very fond memories for me. I have been looking at hornets nest by myself for the last 34 years.
