[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Macro shot taken in Rozel Bay, Jersey. Well known species so not much to say about it.

Great weather outside today- sharp light and no wind- perfect for some macro hunting, I can't wait to begin spring/summer photography season. Didn't have much time yet- that's why I show some older pictures of mine...

I hope You like this one..

Hi Adrian,
great POV and composition, your narrow DOF is perfect to make the head of this Wasp really stand out.

Hi Adrian, superb capture and composition. TFS. Regards,

Hi Adrian,
I liked your frontal POV. Focus on the head, and blurred background with a shallow DOF looks very nice. Well composed and exposed. TFS

Hello Adrian!
This is a very nice close-up of wasp. I tried to identify it but without view of abdomen it is not very easy (similar faces of V. vulgaris and V. rufa).
I like in this picture also its artistic character - the composition is really very nice for watching :)
Best regards and have a nice weekend!
Friendly yours,

Dynamic POV Adrian!
And just enough DOF to make it work, with the head standing out in the frame.
Great color, exposure, details, and composed well..
Nice work,

Hello Adrian. Super macro shot here in stunning detail. Well done and best regards. Jusni
