Featured Image

Every month or so we like to post an image taken by one of our customers using our equipment. It gives you a great idea of what is possible with Cognisys gear. You can see more customer images in our focus stacking and high speed galleries. If you have an image you would like us to consider for this spot please send it to us at

Yellow Jacket in Flight

We found a Yellow Jacket nest behind the Cognisys building a few days ago and could not pass up the opportunity to get out the Insect Rig. The rig was set right over the entrance to the nest. Despite the falling temps here in Michigan these guys are still extremely active hauling all sorts of prey into the nest.
