Wasp with attitude

Artist's Description

Wasps always seem to build their nests in inconvenient places. This swarm chose a brass fish that sits on our terrace, making the nest rather too close to the house for comfort.

I set up the camera with a remote shutter release and a couple of flash units to record the comings and goings. For this shot, one of the flash units failed to fire, giving a dramatic feel to the shot as a single wasp takes on an aggressive stance while eye-balling the camera.

Canon 1DMkII with Canon 28-70 f2.8L lens at 58mm and 25mm tube; ISO200 f14 1/4000
