Hi MF Catherine,

Well composed and good color tone!
You are focusing it on this insect well and drawing out rich color tone. It is interesting for me to see the insect that has a yellow/red foot, black body and wing with delicate/beautiful pattern. And, it's very good on the contrast between the front and background with blur image as well as total color balance.
Thanks for sharing!

This is a very sharp and crisp image of a Wasp beautifully captured on the flowers, Catherine.
The focus on the front portion is superb.
Delightful colours on the subject.
Well done and TFS.

A very nice macro of this male Ichneumon Wasp. It is difficult to ID a species in this group as there are so many similar!
The POV is excellent with good use of the limited DOF to have sharpness where it matters, the head, thorax and wings.
Excellent composition on the wild carrot flowers against a fine neutral Bg.
Thanks and enjoy the rest of your weekend!

a fine close-up picture with good sharpness and nice natural colours, DOF could maybe be some better but it's not easy.
The picture is weel composed with a decent exposure.
Have a nice WE.
