Hallo Clint,

You have made an impressive portret of this insect. The head of the wasp is shown in a rasor sharp image so that even fine details can be well observed. The colors you are showing in the photo are beautiful and there is a fine contrast between insect's colors and the nicely blured background.

Thank you for sharing,


This is a very good macro with wonderful details and colors,the composition is special!

Hello!! What an excellent capture of the face of the wasp - doesn't it look so sharp up close like this?
Good shot Clint

hello Clint
the colors of this shot and the sharpness of the wasp is absolutly fantastic. I like the frontal POV with great eye contact very much
very well done

Well done Clint,
This is not simply a documentary shot, NO ... this is a real Piece of Art. Well chosen aperture, perfectly framed subject and pleasantly smooth background. Bravo Clint !

Hello Clint,
It's very artistic work, very impressive colours especially of BG.
regards, Pawel

Excellent shot. One question. What is that pinkish background? It is adding great effect to this shot in perfect focus on the wasp's 'side burns'!
