#1 is one of the best macros I have ever seen. Great clarity and the nest has a palpable look.

Very nicely done indeed. Great poses on the wasps, well framed, and great detail.

The colour contrast of he wasps is always good and they sit well against the background.

Wonderful images, excellent composition, sharpness, selective focus.
What camera and lens, and what settings?
Thanks for posting,
Joe

I'm not a big fan of Wasp's, but these are tack sharp and beautiful! Nicely done.

Cool shots but I gotta ask, are these real or model wasps? They just look a bit too clean. (plus wasps are usually quite hairy in close up).

I believe that a photo can explain more than the words.
(for the definitive release I have used the 28-75 minolta+lens close-up zeiss t2)

ps.Dodge.....I am not an expert but I believe that these wasps belong to another family, they are not common wasps, those common are these..... (black spar and diffused hair.)



thanks to you francis
