Wasp Portrait

December 14, 2004

I wasn't going to post any extreme macros today, but as I stepped out onto the front verandah, I noticed this wasp sitting on the outside of its nest. I quickly dashed inside for the extra lens, and spent the next fifteen minutes trying to get as many images as I could.

Amazingly the wasp just sat there, and didn't seem bothered by my lens only an inch away! Perhaps even more amazing, to me anyway, was that the image I'm most happy with (the first one), was only the second one I made.
