Hi all, a rework from sunnier days, just a wasp on the stem of a Japanese Anemone. Still not much about here at the moment hence delving into the archives again Sad
Many thanks to those of you that took time out to view and vote on my previous upload, so much appreciated as always,
Regards,
Geoff.

At 105mm. you must have been pretty close, and a lot closer than I'd have chanced having had a few wasp stings in my day and really nasty they were.
However you have managed a macro shot here with quite exquisite detail and colours.

Always make me cringe though, since I was stung on the tongue in the summer by one of the little b...ds.
