Hello - I'm a little acrobatic clown - hanging around there and looking what Sabine is doing.

And I don't know what's my name.
I'm a wasp, but don't know excactly my ID, sorry!
But I hope - anyway you like me without knowing this!

Hello my TN-friend.
Some weeks ago I presented you some black caterpillars, also without knowing what ID they had.

Everybody told me, that they can't be butterflies, perhaps some kind of wasp. Now I was watching this wasp laying her eggs in exactly the same pepermint-plant I found the caterpillars in. Perhaps these were her babies??? Sorry again - so many speculations and questions today with my post, but I hope you enjoy this cute guy, bye.

Sabine, es excelente este detalle, perfecta compo, flash y colores agradables, un disparo original. felicidades y saludos

Hi Sabine,
This is incredible! Wow! You had a great timing there! Details are really sharp and this POV is perfect. What a pose; I like it very much! Thanks,

Hi Sabine......
That's a really wonderfull shot....
great details of tiny creature.....and very good cloros....


Hello Sabine,
A wonderful shot. Super sharp and crisp clear picture. All details are clearly seen. TFS

Respect for this extraordinary grip (taking)! Details are exelents and the very beautiful colors.
Bravo and thank you,

OOps! Don't fall down!
Such nice colors and details in this picture! I think the flash did a good job in this picture, and it didn't appear flat as most pictures with flash would. Good choice of f20 to give a good DOF for the whole insect.

Hi Wishnu,
Very nice makro.POV,framing and composition are wonderful.TFS.. José

Hola Sabine... estupendo POV para mostrar a esta acrobática avispa.
La agudeza de la imagen, sumada a la perfecta iluminación y fondo difuso, componen una imagen muy estética con un DOF impecable.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Sabine... amazing POV to show to this acrobatic wasp.
The sharpness of the image, added to the perfect illumination and diffuse bottom, they compose a very aesthetic image with a DOF impeccable.
Thank you and regards... Ricardo

Hallo Sabine,
Sie ist wirklich niedlich Deine kleine Wespe und Akrobatin dazu. Super Aufnahme, die Dir hier gelungen ist.Hintergrund, Schàrfe, alles stimmt.
Schönen Abend

Wow, what a unique point of view, Sabine! You create magic with your camera, young lady!
The picture of the underside of this wasp is like the most vivid map of its anatomy -- something which normal human eye cannot see that clearly in my opinion.
Just a super picture that cannot be appreciated in a few stilted words.

Hi Sabine,
A great acrobat. DOF is very good. Nice colours.
Don't know about the ID.
Well done

Fantastic perfect, macro

Hi Sabine,

Superb close up shot, the pose is great with the Wasp clinging on tight as you can see the underside perfectly, I like his antenea they look like a couple of meal worms, the detail is so sharp and the clean and the colours are perfect.

Hallo Sabine,

Hallo Sabine,
wunderbar scharfes Bild von dieser kleinen turnerisch begabten Wespe. Die 'Fühlhörner' und die 'Gangfüße' (uralte Ausdrücke aus vergangenen zoolog. Epochen) kommen besonders gut! Eine sichere Identifizierung ohne die Rückenzeichnung zu kennen ist (?fast?) unmöglich.
Schöne Grüße, Peter

Hallo Sabine,
tolles Makro-Bild von dieser Wespe, die dort wirklich toll sitzt und sich festklammert. Die Schärfe ist überzeugend und die Details sind toll zu erkennen. Der Bildaufbau sieht interessant aus. Der Hintergrund lenkt nicht vom eigentlichen Bild ab.
Schönes Bild!
Grüße, Fabian

Hallo Sabine.
Other friends told all things. I can say that this is really a wonderful shot. I'm afraid its getting ready to sink its pin :)

Herzliche Grüsse.

Hi Sabine,
Can't help you on the ID, and actually don't care that much about it. It's a wasp for me.
I am just amazed about the stunning beauty of your photo. Such great moment captured, and of such a high quality. That lens must be your favorite and must be a so familiar to you. What a DOF, what stunning sharpness and colors and excellent lighting. Sehr Schon!

Hallo Sabine,
komme doch noch kurz auf´n Spung nach TN. Tolles Makro von dieser kleinen Wespe. Irgendwie hat die ganz andere Augen als wie die, die ich kenne. Sieht so richtig putzig aus. Sehr guter Bildaufbau, sehr gute Schrärfe und sehr gut ausgeleuchtet. Danke für das tolle Makro.

Hi Du,
noch eine kleiner Ergänzung. Ich glaube, Deine Wespe ist eine Französische Feldwespe (Polistes dominulus). Bin über ein anders Fotoforum darauf gestoßen.
Heinz, der momentan kameralos ist.

Hallo Wishnu,
Das ist sehr schön kompozition.Gefallt mir sehr.Gute farben und detail.


couleurs, netteté, B G, détails tout est là, que dire de plus que bravo et merci du partage
amitiès EDITH

Bonsoir Sabine
Elle est très belle cette prise de vue avec ce beau spécimen aux couleurs sobres mais parfaitement exposée. Les détails sont superbes et la netteté excellente.

Merci pour l'envoie...JP
Les sourire demain

Hallo Sabine,
entzückendes Wespchen, meisterhaft festgehalten mit hervorragenden Details, bester Ausleuchtung und exzellenter Komposition, die aufs Wesentliche reduziert ist und zudem auch noch sehr dynamisch wirkt.
Während die meisten unserer Zeitgenossen hektisch um sich schlagen, wenn sie einer Wespe begegnen - bsonders im Spätsommer, wenn sie unsere Vorliebe für reife Früchte und süße Säfte mit uns teilen, hast Du Dich ihr behutsam und neugierig zugewandt - und bist dafür auch entsprechend belohnt worden.
Mit Dank und lieben Grüßen,

Hi, Sabine.
Superb shot! POV and pose are very interesting. Excellent composition, exposure and sharpness. Nice BG.

da ist wohl jemand vom schwebebalken gefallen. *g*
tolles macro, sabine! :-)
da hast du den kleinen turner aber perfekt erwischt
- schärfe, farben, details, pose, pov, alles spitze!
terrific job & viele grüße aus der mittagspause, thorsten.

Hello Sabine,
Too busy with my home work, I was a bit inactive on TN, so I am happy to discover your new superb photos. You seems to enjoy and manage very well your Tamron 90mm. This outstanding macro is a pleasure for my eyes. The pose of the "Guêpe" is so funny. The quality of the shot is excellent !!!
Bravo and thanks for sharing this beauty.
