The common wasp, Vespula vulgaris, is a yellowjacket wasp found in much of the Northern Hemisphere, and introduced to Australia and New Zealand. It is a eusocial vespid, which builds its grey paper nest underground, often using an abandoned mammal hole as a start for the site, which is then enlarged by the workers. The foundress queen may also select a hollow tree, wall cavity, or rock crevice for a nest site.

Hallo Durzan
The detail captured on this wasp is really great. Sharpness and composition are tops. It is a favourable sight looking at this insect from above. This way one can see its whole profile, body and wing structure and the detail in its beautiful antennas, as well of the thorax. The variety of bright and vibrant colours in the whole image is really beautiful and very eye-catching. Thanks for sharing. Best regards. Anna

Hi Durzan,

this time we are neighbours.
Very nice shot from this insect with good pov and dof.
Fine colours.
