Hallo Lou,
Wat een lelijk monster. Maar wel een prachtfoto in fantastische scherpte (alleen de kop niet) en erg mooie natuurlijke kleuren. Vanuit een prima positie genomen. Goede compositie.
Groet,
Peter

Hi Laurens. This is a fine close up of the Wasp. You have taken it with sharp focusing and fine detail. Your use of the light has given rich colours and a shine to the wings. Well done TFs.

Hi Lou,

You are brave to get this close to this large Wasp. It paid off and you have a fine shot. I especially like the wing and the furry legs. Marvelous colors, details and textures.

Hi Lauens,
I like this well armed and big Wasp a lot. It's so big, it caused you problems with DOF :-). I sure hope you will also post a picture of the other sex.
Have a nice weekend
Dietrich
