[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

It was a Wasp Day for me yesterday at Hebbal Lake. I noticed this pair as I was walking along the green bushes that Hebbal Lake has. They settled down on the leaf and started mating. This gave me a few moments to take a few pictures. After a few shots, the wasps took off together and flew away.

On ne peut pas dire qu'il s'agisse d'un tête à tête !
Bonne journée.

Hi Murali,
So a great capture for the wasp day!
I like the detailed scene of this couple, very clear.
Perhaps the DOF is a little bit wider, so the lower and closer insect isn't totally in focus, but anyways it works pretty well.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Hello Murali
Excellent wasp mating capture,
Great lighting and colors,
Perfect BG,Welldone.


Interesting picture, though the protagonist at the lower end is OOF, Murali.

Dear Murali, Very natural and you have got the exciting moments.. with best regards.vab.
