Photographing a rather pretty little grass, this wasp decided to make a landing, which I was not too happy about, as I was holding the stalk of grass in my hand! After a few quick shots and a very shaky hand, the wasp decided to make its way down the stem towards my fingers, so time to drop the grass and make an exit!
