good evening with all
this evening, I will leave a little the butterflies to present this kind of wasp to you, which was with the sun on this sheet and seemed well to rest.
if I hold to publish it, it is that I like his characteristic of his stripes or the yellow and black arise perfectly.
this image did not have final improvements, just redimentionnée for TN and framed.
I hope that you will like it.
thank you for your comments

Wonderful image, Edith, the colors are fantastic.

If you increased your f stop a bit (like to 10-11) you would have had the wings in focus. Well done


Hi Edith,
This wasp shows the yellow stripes clearly. Great timing to get this shot. Nicely composed. Very well done and tfs.

hello edith,
lovely shot, the wasp look quite sharp, the green leaf makes a nice bg, well saturated colours, good pov, lovely composition,
tfs & regards

incredible detalis, good guide lines.

Hello Edith,
Great details in the insect!
Bright colours and DOF spot on, a fine macro capture!

Hi Edith,
Wonderful shot of this Wasp with sharp details and fantastic yellow stripes. Superb lighting and the green leaf as BG presents a nice contrasting base to highlight the wasp and it stands out elegantly. I like the sheen on its wings and your top POV to portray it. Very nicely composed. Kudos.

I love the colours, Edith!
And the composition is simply super
I am glad to have you publishing here again

bonjour edith
pas estra nette mais joliement colorée.
et pour moi ce n'est pas une guêpe,et tu es bien placée pour savoir que je sais les reconnaitre,je pense plutot a un "tenthredo arcuata".

Hi Edith,
A nice capture of this wasp. Very fine details and a lovely composition over green leaf. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Edith,
You have presented a real sharp bee.

Hi Edith

Lovely shot of this wasp. The light and colours in the wing as especially attractive. Nicely framed with good DOF and sharp details



salut edith
une belle prise de cette guêpe bien jaune et noire avec une grosse netteté et un fond vert qui s'accorde bien avec le spécimen, beau travail

Hermosa imagen con una luz perfecta. Buenos detalles y genial encuadre.
Un saludo Edith, JL.

Bonjour Edith,
effectivement le contraste entre le jaune et le noir est particulièrement net, les couleurs sont fantastiques
bravo et merci de partager,

Bonsoir Edith,chouette photo que voila,et c'est sur qu'il est plus agreable de la voir se reposer sur une feuille que de l'avoir dans son verre.Loll
Belle macro,de beau détails dans les ailes

Hi Edith.
I like your wasp picture. It is full of sunlight and alive colors. Details of the insect is perfect as well as the leaf reproduction. POV is very impressive too. May be f-number should be smaller and exposure time be longer. Close-up picture I produce at aperture priority mode with control of shutter speed. My best regards and TFS. Well job.

Hello Edith a fine capture superb quality good detail and perfect dof good space in front also tfs rgds Necip

Coucou mon amie
Et je suis là enfin pour voir tes belles captures
beaux détails et belle lumière


Hi Edith,
What a nice and colorful macro shot. superb quality sharpness, nice details. DOF/POV. Nicely composed. TFS, well done,

Salut Édith,
C'est une bonne prise de vue détaillée de cette guêpe. Les couleurs sont justes dans une bonne prise de vue. L'utilisation de 1/200 a laissé une de ses ailes floue mais ce n'est qu'un détail :) Merci!

Bonjour Edith, très bonne macro de cette guê^pe au repos. Bien cadrée sur le fond vert. Du bon travail !


Hi Edith,
this is a very nice photo of a type of wasp that I have never before seen.The only thing I can say that could be better is if your had more depth of field to bring more detail into focus but as it is, a very good and clear shot just the same. Thanks for showing this one to us all. Bob

super sharp and colorful shot of one of my worst enemies..been stung so often
still we all can be careful and give space
good overhead clinical lighting enhances the detail
very minor observation..blurred leaf...

Hi Edith
Belle presentation ,les couleurs et la nettetée sont très bonnes, belle composition
J'apprecie cette belle macro
au revoir et merci....JP

AlORS ma didith mais quelle mouche t'a piquée ?
Une belle guèpe à la taille tout fine...
Belles couleurs en effet
Bravo et bonne soirée

Bonjour Edith,
Tu as le don pour réaliser de superbes macro! Celle-ci est, elle aussi très réussie! Les détailset couleurs sont simplement parfaits. La profondeur de champ est impressionnante même sur un si petit sujet :-)


Hi Edith,

very beautiful image, excellent quality, great sharpness and colors



Hello Edith.

Excellent picture, nice composition and colors.

Hello Edith!

Nice and clear shot! If wasp's right wing was also clear, it would be perfect. IMHO, you ought to close your aperture more.
best regards.
