Stunning shots Carol but I hate these with a passion as I am allergic to them Hope you squashed it after taking its picture.
Who else can capture the details of a scary wasp.V3 is superb, Carol, with fine details of the antennae, bristles & other markings. - Raja.

Wonderful macro work, Carol, even if I reckon your Wasp is every bit as horrid as the Earwig in my image!! Tongue Congrats on those well deserved awards.

We had a wasp show up in church last Sunday, looking just as bedraggled. We all wondered where he came from in this cold.

3 great close ups Carol, all with a good dof.

You are braver than I - I stay away from these as much as possible. My neighbor just cut her ground ivy with the lawmower, and woke up a nest of ground hornets. She was hit about 15 times and had to go to emergency for treatment. I know they do a lot of good, but I wish they weren't so easily "irritated".
An incredibly detailed shot Carol. Never thought about them having those hairs on their bodies.

Just how close can you get. Such amazing detail.
Hard to imagine these insects still being alive in December.

What lens?! Why my Sigma 105mm DG macro lens doesn't produce such good quality and sharpness on bees? I think wasps are much bigger than small bees...

Simply fantastic set and fully deserving the battery of awards Carol. Your (seemingly) endless array of bugs quite astounds me, just about as much as your superb macro photography of them!
