Hazards of Gravestone Photography

Over the years I have photographed thousands of gravestones. Sometimes it can be quite challenging. I've dealt with gravestones obscured by encroaching grass, day lilies, wild grape vines, or lilac bushes. I've excavated half-buried gravestones. I've dealt with numerous lighting issues: gravestones in heavy shade, gravestones that face north, gravestones that can only be read when the sun shines perpendicular to the stone. But I've never had to deal with a wasp's nest on a monument. I'll think I'll wait for freezing temperatures, or use a telephoto lens.
