Dracula at Work

No art in this image, just something that a macro togger wouldn't walk past! It is those medicinal callendulas again--- no help for the wasp this time....

If Phillipe Halsman had shot color and macro, this would be a photo that he would have been proud of, Jenn. Poor wasp, great moment and photo.

I've seen many shots of this type Jenn (including my own) but for me it's the best so far. The dof you get with that lens (just that little more forgiving) is ideal for macro of this subject, superb detail and love the composition,
Geoff.
