I am sure it took a lot of courage to get this picture and I can see that you really got their attention 100%.
Fantastic shot Japie. Excellent dof and sharpness, beautiful colours, great pov - really a second to none. Thanks for taking the chance.
Brave man Jaapie, when I 1st did one I too got stung then I borrowed some bee keeping gear and a leather motorcycle suit (for a laugh see here) and they totally ignored me even with the flash in use.
this is a great capture the details are amazing and the view of their reactions is superb, on point to addd I think the slightly talller cell may be the next lot of queens.

Very good portrayel of the complete "wasp" scene Japie. I agree , it must have been scary to get this shot especially at 33c

Hiedie foto is so skerp, dit maak my oë entlik seer. En ek is seker dit was 'n pyn omi alles opmekaar gestapel te kry, and this at the risk of a painful encouter too!
But no pain, no gain, and here you scored all the way! very nice note too.

Hi Japie, this is a great shot. I can tell you I would have been a hundred miles away from here. You must have nerves of steel my friend :) Don.

You've gone to the MAX. A very good note, I can read the excitement of wildlife photography. And the result, a very good photo. I love the way I can see the different forms in witch the cells ar eused and constructed.
Good story, good action and good shot, Richard

Great shot, Japie, I think you are brave to get close to one and take the photo. I never get near to any one of this yet, your note is very helpful. Cheers.
