Wasps of the cosmopolitan genus Polistes are the most familiar of the polistine wasps, and are the most common type of paper wasp. It is also the single largest genus within the family Vespidae, with over 300 recognized species and subspecies. Their innate preferences for nest-building sites leads them to commonly build nests on human habitation, where they can be very unwelcome; although generally non-aggressive, they can be provoked into defending their nests. All species are predatory, and they may consume large numbers of caterpillars, in which respect they are generally considered quite beneficial. The European paper wasp, Polistes dominulus, was introduced into the US about 1981 and has quickly spread throughout most of the country, in most cases replacing native species within a couple of years. This species is very commonly mistaken for a yellowjacket, as it is black strongly marked with yellow, and quite different from the native North American species of Polistes. Polistes can be identified by their characteristic flight; their long legs dangle below their body, which is also more slender than a yellowjacket.

Bonjour Robi, voila déjà un moment que je n'avais plus vu tes photos,
C'est une excellente macro que tu nous présente là, superbes détails sur la tête de l'insecte grace a un excellent focus, couleurs splendides et très bien contrastées et très jolie composition
Merci pour la note instructive, je ne connaissais pas ce Poliste, qui se confond volontier avec une guêpe
bravo,
Pat

Hello Robi,
nice view and exact focus on the wasp's face. Perhaps not so easy to present the white surfaces and the interior of the flower, both well-exposed!? But your result is pretty good without any over- or under-exposure.
Best wishes, Peter

Hello Robi,

A very good macro of the anterior of the wasp! The sharpness and details are excellent! The white of the flower is well handled and gives the impression that the wasp is mountaineering!

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Bonjour Robi,
pauvre petite guêpe! Et moi qui pensais d'abord qu'elle te regardait en souriant!! Et maintenant je vois qu'elle pleure. J'aime bien le close-up sur son regard. Belle image avec des couleurs fines et subtiles..
Bonne journée
Anne

bonjour robi
c'est incroyable se que l'on apprend lorsque l'on s'interresse a la macro,j'ai fait une desensibilisation pour l'allergie aux guepes vespula vulgaris et j'etais bien loin de penser qu'il y avait autant d'autres guepes.enfin pour revenir brievement a la photo(longuement ne serait pas utile)c'est superbe et heureusement qu'elle etait englué car qu'elle est la distance de mise au poinr ici?
