WOW... Great photo agine:)
But if yo'd put the focus more on the other bug it would be perfect.
The wasp si Great very sharp, too bad for that other bug.
Good job

Great macro Astrid. This is absolutely stunning with great colour and detail. Excellent job. Into my favourites

Great macro Astrid.
Very good DOF, details and colours.
Very well done.

The shot is just as good as your previous post. The colours and contrasts very lovely. The wasp I think is a Thread-waisted wasp (Ammophila sp. maybe A. ferrugineipes) They do catch other insects and take as food to the mud nests. Who knows maybe the moth was on its menu.

You do take very nice photo's but the essence of the site is learning about nature and photography. I would really like to see you put in some more information in your notes though.

Share and share alike! Well done Astrid! I have added this to my favourites. So clear and the colours are superb. TFS.

Beautiful sharp photo. Beautiful colours on the insects. Beautiful composition. Very well done!

That flower of yours is busier than my hotel lately ... just kidding ... Another excelent shot (this time almost ten, the moth head is getting out of focus and the stance is off ). You get a nine however !

Otra impactante imagen Astrid al igual que la anterior.
Excelente oportunidad para capturar 2 insectos sobre el mismo cardo con gran agudeza (sobre todo en la avispa) y un colorido excepcional.
No informas el F ni la velocidad utilizadas para esta captura, que siempre son datos interesantes para analizar.
Gracias por compartirla.

Another impressive image Astrid like the previous one.
Excellent opportunity to capture 2 insects on the same thistle with great sharpness (mainly in the wasp) and exceptional colorful.
You do not inform the used F nor the speed for this capture, that always is interesting data to analyze.
Thanks for sharing.

It seems that you really took advantage of what this flower offered you, very nice follow up of last post. It would be much more interesting with a better note, and also to know your shooting paramenters.

Mamy tu naprawdę trzy w jednym, bo oset też jest pełnoprawnym bohaterem. Brakuje tylko porannej rosy :))

Very good shot once more.
Good sharpness, great background.
Well done.

Well that Wasp sure looks like he is claming that flower his/hers! Excellent capture...I just photos that depict the drama of the secret life of nature. Well done!

Hello Astrid,

Very good shot, image is sharp and detailed, colors are good and DOF.

Thanks for sharing,


Great photo, what good luck finding 2 insects on the one flower. Colours and composition are good.

Wow! Amazing capture, very nice color and perfect focus, beautifull macro, the Nikon D100 is a great camera and photographer too!
Congratulations Astrid,

Beautiful macro, Astrid. I like how the colors match together and with the perfect background. The details on the wasp are outstanding, as well as the position on top allowing an open view of the anatomy. Very well photgraphied.
