A rather sinister looking Common Wasp where the mandibles are open and the tongue is showing and to me it looks like he's smiling as he's just planning on how to sting you! Wink A crop taken from the image in V2, which was a stack consisting of 22 images overlaid using Zerene. I just couldn't make up my mind which my favourite image was this morning so thought I'd post them both.
Thanks for all the positive comments on yesterday's image......Ade

Both excellent and as good (or do I mean scary) as V1 is I think V2 just nicks it for me.

v1 for me Ade, the legs (?) are disembodied but they frame the face perfectly and the overall balance looks better (and scarier).

Nightmares are made of these Ade! I hate wasps since bumbling into a nest last year, too many stings all at once, not a good idea and quite frightening! Amazing macro skills and patience, best wishes to you and Sue - Carole

Amazing detail and closeuppiness once again, Ade. I gotta say I prefer the uncropped version in V2. Better waspy portraiture and I love those antennae Smile

Excellent details. Something huge like this bit me on the side of the face just yesterday. And kept coming back at me to do it again. So I'm not happy with bees of any sort right now. Great shots though.............Sandy
