paper wasp, macro
Got the bug!Am I obsessive?Camera shutter worn out!Computer suffering overload!Did I take another 500 photos today?Back up falling behind? :(Can’t decide what to upload?Yes that’s me!
Geez, you’re keen Gaby, getting that close to one of these things!! One of my personal unfavourite things!! Nasty little critters that sting! BUT… Brilliant photography!! And you have really caught his character – he looks MEAN!! “Don’t mess with me” is definitely the attitude!! Fantastic photography!! :)))
Hi Vicki, I totally agree, I have vivid memories of being chased around the house and bitten when my brother hit a paper wasp nest! :((
I found this one on its own, so I didn’t mind sticking the lens in her face! LOL! She eventually left after being flashed a few times! lOL!

awesome shot Gabe I wont get this close for sure lol great details
Thank you Maggie, I just stick the lens in their face and pray for the best! Eeek! I think I’m starting to work out when I need to RUN away! LOL!
Very nice macro capture
Thank you my friend! :)
Thank you Ray! :)
Bewdy mate! Perfect focus!!!
Hehehehe! Bewdy mate! Yep, haven’t heard that for a while m8tee! :) Thank you my sweet! :) xx
You got right in it’s face Gabe. Great shot Mate.
Yarp and I didn’t even get a bite! LOL! I thought I’d be nosy and see if it could take my lens and she was OK. One on it’s own is OK! There’s a big paper wasp nest on Brendan’s shed, he was going to hit it with the pressure cleaner, I was running! :( Most likely they would go after me? :((
Great macro Gabe … anything for photography eh …. even a few stings or two! I am glad you know when to run, and I think I would be running before you.
Yes sad but true Christina, I’ve done that before. I once layed on the ground in a nest of green ants trying to photograph them, amazingly they didn’t bite me! I thought that was weird but then again, I gave them some chips to see how they worked picking them up.
