Very interesting shot Carol! I can see the babies inside! Is it the babies?
Anyway they look great! Hope you haven't got a reaction from the sting...

Two cracking detailed captures. I think the sting was worth it but then I am not the one on the receiving end.

Wow, two brilliant an unusual shots Carol, well done you for being brave enough to risk a sting, I don't think I would have hung around long enough to get even 1 shot.

Two stunning, absolutely remarkable shots. Well done you for getting them.

I can't say they were well worth the sting because I have never had a wasp sting in my life, but I said that about bee stings until a couple of years ago - ouch!
11 Aug 2014 7:32AM
Stunning! Great work for your art. Well captured.
11 Aug 2014 7:36AM
Hope you don't have any after effects from the sting - they look like vicious types.
Great pictures, Carol.

A very interesting and well captured pair of images Carol. Each one full of great colour and detail. Thanks for sharing.

I hope that the sting won't put you off capturing many more superb images.

Very brave of you to approach that close, but a great find: V 2 for me as the detail is so crisp.
I have had 3 wasp stings and they were quite horrendous, so I'd not have tried what you did.
Nice fined Carol,2 super images.

11 Aug 2014 8:17AM
Wonderful images of these dangerous wasps, Carol!
11 Aug 2014 8:46AM
Two brilliant shots Carol, V2 is my favourite, the detail is so sharp Smile

Great shots. Such a small nest compared with those I've seen over here. Must be a different type of wasp.

Two cracking close up shots Carol, i hope your ok after the sting, a friend of mine ended up in hospital after a wasp sting he reacted badly to it. He was replacing some roof tiles and underneath them was a wasps nest lol, his face and neck really swelled up and i think they were worried it would close off his airways
