My Pet, Jasper

By Ade_Osman    
Re-work of a similar image posted before of a Wasp. I've learned a bit more about the software for the stacking of images since the original, so thought I'd trawl back through the archives I have and have a re-work of a few images.

Feeling a little tired this morning as I watched the Olympic opening (what a spectacle) and had the moth traps out last night. Caught one or five nice and rare specimens, so now I've got to go out and get them in the camera. By the time I've done that, I've no doubt it won't be long before I'm fast asleep in front the swimming Tongue So I don't think I'll be doing much commenting until later, but as always I've no doubt I catch up with everyone. Beside's you should all be out in this glorious weather trying to capture EC winning shots anyway Grin

Have a great weekend folks.......Ade

Oooh! Amazing details! Grin

We watched the ceremony too - but our meter ran out during the final firework show and in my haste I walked into a wall (at least if it bruised my painful nose would be worth having!!). Smile

Awesome detail and clarity in this incredible close up, as a Gloucester rugby fan I'm rather reluctantly voting for this wasp!Wink This extreme close up will scare the living daylights out of that big wuss the Tomcat, he's absolutely petrified of wasps and will run away screaming if he views large!!!GrinTongue

Everyone thinks this is a macro Mike, but what no one knows is which species he is.......He's actually 6ft long! I don't feel silly at all!!! Wink

But I do winder why folks cross over to the other side of the street, Jaspers a pussycat really, all he asks for is the odd jar of jam or marmalade. You wouldn't want to make him angry though Wink

Holy cow...AWESOME macro, Ade! Sheesh.

And thanks for putting up that shot of Ellie's. She's got a GREAT eye and sense of photography. If she overcomes her shyness, her portfolio would slaughter us by the time she's 12.

My hubs took me across a narrow path to a field growing Broad Beans and there in the field was Ragwort I found the caterpillar he tried taking a picture of the other day but it nearly finished me off I dont walk well and with a stick, was frightened of falling in the ditch - I am full of admiration for your patience and stamina knowing what you go through and the suffering encountered sometimes, well done this is a great shot Ade
