A tripod is always a good idea but for this shot some fill-flash might help also, it helps to freeze the subject. Quite a fearsome looking beastie with those huge antennae. I like the POV, it's unusual but very effective. Interesting note, good post.

A nice shot on this Hornet. Macro work has put me back on the tripod. I found that my hand held shots were soft when you work that close. This still has nice colors and good detail in it.

Hi Janice, don't dispare, apart from the obvious which Adrian has given good advice on, your composition here is very good. Just keep your chin up, once you get your tripod there will be no stopping you. TFS.

Pleasant composition and you capture the insect in an interesting position!
Your point of view is good, the image is a bit noisy... maybe lighting was difficult?
Nice presentation and good note!

I never saw that kind of Vespula. Very interesting. She has a very incomum antenna.
