Photographing bugs in general is a challenge, when it is a wasp it is even more challenging as they tend to get a little upset. I think the world of insects is so cool. There is so much detail and fun things to find out when taking pictures of them. I did not know that a wasp had so many hairs on their body. Plus the detail that you see in the eye is extraordinary!!!!
On a cool fall day this wasp was not interested in trying to escape till he warmed up. That gave me a few minutes to get some macro images before the heat of the day warmed him up and he flew off. He was a perfect subject to spend part of an afternoon working with.
With this picture I love the black and the yellow as well as the yellow and brown of the leaves that the wasp was sitting on.
I love bug pictures! They may not be for everyone but for me I could do these pictures day after day. They have a sense of other world about them. If you did not know that this was a common insect on earth you could think that it flew here in its own spacecraft or that it was a spacecraft.
