Ruby & Co.

By KarenFB
Whilst gardening yesterday, I noticed an odd 'jerky' movement by the Mason Bee nests. When I went to investigate I spotted two of these gorgeous little wasps (Ruby-tailed Wasp). It wasn't until I had the image up on screen that I noticed she had passengers............poor thing (makes me itch just looking at her!).

Fabulous pin sharp details and beautiful irridescent colours you've captured in this macro Karen. The Big O with his prime lens would be hard pressed to better this!
