[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This image of the Polistes fastidiotus was quite memorable for me after few attempts to capture the insect in motion around their nest I was attacked and learn my lesson in seconds! Haaa.hhaaa haaa!
Definitely 70mm lens is not the ideal photographic tool in situations like this one!!

This species was presented by me not long ago, so if you wanna read a bit more about it, please check my pages here.

Hi George, this photo caught my eye straight away. You've made good job using partial panning method here. The details appear nice and eventually you've obtained a fine dynamic BG and total image. Certainly a unique and interesting effect. Well done.

Dinamic photo of this Polistes fastidiotus !

Hi George,

I really like this photo. The colours are very good and I like the motion that has been caught. The eye still seems fine and in focus and the body seems good as well.
Great capture and TFS.


Ciao George, it's the first time that I see a panning in a macro, great idea, splendid effect, pay attention no more lesson as this, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Excellent job, George!!! Dynamic, shows a very good panning technique with very good colours, exceptional BG! Amazing capture, it's a pity that you must have suffered!

Hello George,
This photo only can happen you! ... ¿Some of "panning", no?
A work visually "exciting" ... is an "in flight" very particular, and provides a lively sense of movement.
Congratulations on your good result with "extreme hard pictures" ... I hope you do not try to do the same with snakes or tigers! :)
By the way ... I see that 1/30s and not cease to be amazed! You like to experiment!
