Polistes gallicus auct.
Polistes dominula (often misspelled as dominulus), sometimes referred to as the European paper wasp,[1] is one of the more common and well-known species of social wasps in Europe. It is considered an invasive species in Canada and the United States.

I think that the most interesting in this picture is to see how the wasp keep on the water.

Hello Luis, A sharp good picture. I like the indentures in the water around the feet. Gary

Bom dia Luis!
Realmente é fantástico como ela se aguenta fruto da tensão superficial da água.Excelente composição e nitidez.
Obrigado e um abraço

Hi Luis,
Nice picture of this wasp on the water with best clarity & great sharpness.
Never seen before. The circles on the water near the legs looks nice here. Well done & TFS.
