I like your photo Robbert.

Great shot Robert and very detailed so I don't mind if is German or common ;-). Colours and dof are spot on.

Une note très intéressante Norbert, il semble que cette guêpe est en difficulté.
Le cadrage et la couleur sont parfaits pour cette image très originale.
A very interesting note Norbert, it seems that this wasp is in difficulty. Framing and the color are perfect for this very original picture.

Hi Robert - Theres two names comming up on my computer - Hornet and Whasp.
Great shot, even the body a bit out of focus, I like background as well - nice work and note.

A moment well captured. I have seen wasps eating various things, carrion, maggots, insects and such. I once watched several wasps dismantling a very large damsel fly in such an organised fashion. First they chopped off and discarded the legs and wings, then removed the head and abdomen, the thorax was the first thing they took (I guess that has all the muscle). After that they returned taking segments of the abdomen. Interesting and disturbing to watch.
anyway good capture, shame the focus is a little off but there isn't often time for times like these.
I'm fairly sure, that from what I can see of the thorax and abdomen that this is a common wasp.

Interesting picture on an unusal environnement. Quality is not perfect, but the exposure works well

A great shot Robert, You're right, focus isn' spot on, but it doesn't deserve the picture too much.
Good cropping and nice colors.
Very interesting subject, and a great note too, so...

Thank you, Robert, for enligthening me on that one. Last week we had a lot of wasps under a pine tree near our summer house, together with a lot of hoverflies. I thought the two just co-existed in the same kind of environment. Now I've learned differently. It often comes back to the food chain, doesn't it?
Thanks for sharing (the other shot of the kill is also great - if not greater).
