[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The woods down from my house are really coming to life with insects during these winter months.Not yet the season for the European Paper Wasp though so this is a reminder from last year.Seen here on a Sea Squill or White Squill (Urginea Maritima).

Hi David,
Bright light and the beautiful colours. Perhaps a little oversharpen but a nice image.

very nice macro on Urginea (hazav), dash Ori

Hi David,
Excellent POV here.
I like so much the wonderful details on the flowers petals, they seems to be transparents, but seeing carefully we realize that is the effect of the light reflected.
The light is so good, and you made a great composition with all this little flowers.
Congratulations, thanks for share and best regards,
JM

Hi David,

Hello David,
You show that even a wasp can be beautiful especially in this very nice light. The sharpness and the colours are really perfect and I very much like the flowers too. Brilliant composition!
Many thanks, Ulla

Wow an excellent shot great light nice detail good Dof and background tfs rgds Necip.

Hello David,
magnificent light in this image, very well managed in the whites of the blossoms in front of apleasantly soft background. I like the asymmetrical placing and the vivid colours of the wasp.
With thanks, and best regards,
Peter
