Hello Laurens,
you show this wasp from a superb point of view. Well focused and pretty good sharpness. The strong light is well managed.
Best regards Siggi

Hi Laurens,

Very nice, a great attraction.
Point of view, depth of field, lighting, and sharpness settings, very satisfying.
The composition of shapeless full spectacle of vivid colors.
Thanks for sharing.

Best Regards,

Hallo Laurens,

alweer een mooie macrofoto van een insect.

Another interesting species of wasp, well shown. tfs.

Hi MF Lou,

Nicely captured, the wasp is perfectly sharp, with good exposure so that the subtle details in the body are seen. The off-center positioning works well.
TFS and have a nice new week MF!


Hello Laurens,
What a interesting capture... Very good details and superb POV.
Excellent contrast and background.

Ciao Lou, great macro of fantastic wasp, splendid sharpness and fine details, great contrast against dark BG, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hello Lou,
Congratulations for this first post of this pretty wasp resting and for finding the ID. Not easy of course. So many wasps... Cheers,

Hi Lou,

This is a picture I would never be able to shoot. I would be frightened to get close enough. This is more detail than I would ever see for myself - I thank you for this post. I love his position and the superb colors, clarity and composition.


Hi Lou,
A nice capture of this beautiful wasp. Sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Laurens,
Great and well exposed macro photo with clear details and well saturated colours

Hello Lou,
Very impressive this wasp! And also very colorful. Nice to see it posed on the beautiful Queen Anne's lace. Well shown with pleasant framing. Yesterday I saw also a very big wasp, more that 2cm long.
Kind regards
