Bonjour Sergio,
Tout est possible, aussi dans le royaume des insectes! Image très intéressante, je n'ai encore jamais vu de guêpes s'accoupler. Cela ne devait pas être très facile de prendre cette photo. Bien vu!

hi Sergio,
very beautiful capture, bit rare to see, you could have gone parallel to get both in focus to make this image more appealing. may be you didn't had that time to adjust as i see the one wasp almost beating its wings. nevertheless, its great. tfs.

Hi Sergio,
Very interesting picture and :o) ... very good title. It made me laugh a lot. TFS.

Ciao Sergio,
bella cattura e ottimo tempismo, non mi sembra sia stata una foto facile da fare non avendo potuto sfruttare al meglio le possibili angolazioni di ripresa e con i soggetti in movimento, che rende difficile la messa a fuoco, il risultato, oltre che essere interessante perchè poco visto, è molto buono anche sul piano tecnico.

Hi Sergio,

good composition and low pov.
great details, a pity the whole wasp beneath are not sharp, a little more dof?


Eh Sergio, qui andiamo sul porno, ma non esiste una censura su TN?
Titolo azzeccato, è proprio una posa da kamasutra, splendida macro, ottima la profonditaà di campo, scatto difficile molto ben eseguito, bravo,ciao Silvio

Hello Sergio,
What an excellent macro image showing these wasps in an unusual position in deed. Thank you for sharing this great work.

Nicely captured!

hello SERGIO,
harika bir zamanlama.

Ola Sergio,

It's my first time to see such kind of insect in mating position. You captured it very well.

Excellent capture of these wasps Sergio.
Good focus on the eye and good colour and detail.
Nice work!

Wow - what a great moment, I never saw wasps mating before.
Very well done, Sergio, thanks for sharing, ciao
