Hi Ori,
Great shot of this paper wasp which is similar to one we see in the warmer parts of the North Island of New Zealand.
It has only arived in the country in the last 10 years,but has established in very large numbers.

Hello Ori,
Very interesting to see how this nest is attached to the stone. Like you say, it is a piece of art!
And you managed to make an excellent picture out of it, very well focussed too on both wasp and nest.
Very interesting and well executed posting.
Best regards

Lovely shot! Well done! Ishi

Hello Ori
great macro shot, sharpness, details and natural color
I like also the placement of composition

Almost missed this beauty Ori, very good capture of the Polistes wasp on its nest made of wood pulp, can call it a paper nest indeed!

Ori, This is an awesome image. Great job. I certainly do appreciate your kind comment on my 'Skimming The Surface' shot. This is a special one for me and I'm happy that you like it.
Have a great week, Bill

Hello Ori,
Very nice presentation ,interesting to see both the nest and the builder

Hi Ori,

"work of art" is also your photography! The light just touches the transparent parts, antennae and legs. And your composition is something else, there is lightness and tension combined!
Thanks for this.
Best regards
