[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It seems that it is an suspicious, hazardous affair. But you can be sure there is not so much risk for to be a friend with this guy. After i took more than hundred photos from him, i decided to invite to my hand to celebrate our friendship. Actually after a rainy and cold night this guy became rather inactive and only moving on the leaves slowly, though he look so energetic and vigorous in the photo. i think he gave me a pose to look honorable and dangerous. He accepted or had to accept my insistent finger and walked on my hand.

Have a nice weekend! Is it early to say spring is coming slowly! i think, yes early, but i feel that the spring on the road:-)

Hello Ersin,
Delighted to see your fresh post.
Taking pictures of wasps and other diabolic creatures by inviting them to perch on your fingers is a risky business alright, my friend. However, the picture is so good there is no way but to say: 'Wow, what a picture!'
A superb capture with your fill-flash using talents at their best.
Keep posting regularly; we miss you.

bonjour Ersin

waaaaaahoooooo vraiment halucinant comme prise de vue très belle hatitude de l'insect il me fait pensé a un avion de chasse superbe couleurs et une très bonne netteté bravos


Hey Ersin,
LOL, again this kind of picture! I told you many times: “you really are insect's best friend”; I like it. This is a very nice catch and every time I wonder how you can do it as you have to take the picture with only one hand; something that I couldn’t do with my camera as it is too heavy. This is a very good POV and your friend is perfectly detailed. I love its color, I guess it dressed like this to visit you :-)

Here, it seems to be the beginning of winter finally. Temperature drop under 0 degree Celsius and the next days will be cold but we don't have much snow so far. Thanks and take care,

Hello Ersin,
A very good closeup of this insect, you managed to capture so sharp and with good details.
Nice -and risky- POV ;-) used here.
Good composition and color saturation.
Congratulations and thanks for share,

Una verdadera locura amigo mío para obtener una macro así... si te hubiera picado, no podrías ni publicarla! ;-)
Generalmente no participo en críticas donde aparezca el hombre, pero esta imagen tiene un bonus que no podía dejar pasar... tu pasión.
Gran agudeza y foco para captar a este ejemplar con buena definición y un excelente OOF.
Ten cuidado... Ricardo

A true madness my friend to obtain a macro this way... if it had pricked you would not neither to publish it! ;-)
Generally I don't participate in critiques where the man appears, but this image has a bonus that could not allow to pass... your passion.
Great sharpness and focus to capture to this specimen with good definition and excellent OOF.
Be careful... Ricardo

Hello, my friend, and nice to see you back!
Hope that now you will have a bit more time and we will be enjoying your posts more often :)
This "little" wasp is great and it's slowly becoming a trademark for you ;)
The details are very neat and sharp and the colors and tones are charming and well saturated.
I also like the POV and the DOF a lot, as well as the nice composition!

Bravo and TFS

Hi Ersin,
As usual, a very well exposed shot, with your trademark use of flash and detail. Usually these wasps are very tranquil so I guess you were in no great risk composing this shot.
Well captured and TFS

Hello Ersin,
peaceful men may get powerful friends. Congratulations!
Remarkably clear close-up with perfect depth of field.
You are presenting this well built wasp in a very lovable way.
Thank you! Best regards,

  • Great
