Wow! Just amazing photo!Have a good Sunday as well!
Did you take the photo indoors? That poor wasp must've flown off thinking "No nectar! Where's this world going to? ;)
Great macro Leena. I'm sure there was much confusion by the wasp.
excellent macro photo.
Sonia,thanks, same to you!fenix,yes, I was putting those funny sandals on, when I saw the wasp. We took it outside after photographing :)Sue,I am sure about it !slinger,I took ten photos, this was only clear enough.Thank you all and wonderful Sundayto you too!
Whoa - that's close!Don't they attack!?
Hello lenna,Nice close-up photograph of a Bald Faced Hornet. Or, that is what we call them. They do have a nasty sting that burns like being stuck with a red-hot poker. I had one sting me up my trouser leg on the inside of my thigh and on the way to the house I was trying desperately to get my pants off to see what it was that was causing so much pain. My wife thought I had lost my mind and was undressing outside.It was a Bald Faced Hornet. Ouch.
freefalling,This one was not dangerous,it needed nectar.AbrahamI can imagine the situation : )I have had same kind of experiences.Thank you for visiting my blog.I write this on an island of the lake Pyhäselkä.It's warm and sunny here.
I like your banner; great photo. What exactly is a macro photo?
WOW...Stunning Photo! Excellent Job!
Your dog seems to like soil, a real nature dog :-)Wasps are about the only creatures that I do not like (together with crocodiles and sharks, however it is not likely that I ever meet the latter ones :-)
tut-tut,I think, we say macro, if a photo of something shows it bigger than it is in nature, for instance this wasp`s hair or prongs ( ? ) in it`s feet.beetle,many thanks :)Hildegarde,I do not like them very much either, especially in the mouth with jelly - I have got one and it really stuck to my palate. I can say - it was unpleasant, indeed.The nature dog, yes. She did just today one trick on the island, what I can tell only by email:)) but it proves, she is the nature dog!!Thanks you all for stopping by!!
I tried photographing a bee up close once and it only acme out blurry - I am amazed how u were able to do this level of closeness!!!
kala,as I said earlier, I took several photos and only this was clear enough. But the wasp was slow and easy to take many photos.I make a photo like close up by Picasa . If the photo is clear enough, you can get it to seem like this.Thanks for dropping in!
Nice photo, indeed!!!Spring seems to have come in your country. I love that moment after long winter.By the way, I am very surprised how long the day time is now!! Is is real that the day time is about 19 hours long?? I cannot imagine that it is still bright at 10:00 pm.
Leena what an incredible incredible photo!!!! This is just STUNNING!
