Wow, Carol that first image is spectacular. So sharp, the detail is marvelous. (Oh and you were right about the bg yesterday so I changed it, trouble is I'm colour-blind so sometimes it looks good to me when it ain't Grin )

V1 is magnificent and shows just how enigmatic these creatures are. Living in the UK they are the only insect that I don't like (stung as a child) I admire their beauty but would as soon swat one if it was anywhere near me!

I too am not so keen on these chaps having been stung a number of times, Carol, but your shots, esp. V 1, shows all the amazing detail in the wasp.

Nooo...not ONLY a wasp. A VERY beautiful wasp and your captures (no pun intended) of it are fanTAStic, Carol. The detail on the head and back in V1 are just incredible, as is the detail on its bum and wings in V2.

Fabulous Smile

My husband would run and hide if he saw one of these - hopefully the cool weather slowed it down so it wasn't agressive!

Only a wasp you say, but seen in such detail as I've never seen before, for some reason doesn't seem so menacing here!
