O marinbondo
As vespas são insetos pertencentes à ordem dos himenópteros, subordens Apocrita ou Symphyta. As larvas da ordo (ordem) Apocrita são usualmente carnívoras ou parasitóides, enquanto que as da Symphyta são herbívoras.
No Brasil também são chamadas "marimbondos" as vespas da familia (família) Vespidae, Pompilidae ou Sphecidae, ou em algumas regiões do sul, "zangões".

Simply unbelievable colour palette of the picture. It is fine. However, pictured insect is also amazing. Diagonal composition of the image, selected DOF are also great and details of the wasp is stunning. Well done and kind regards.

Belas cores, enquadramento e nitidez. Grande zoom.
Great shot.


Olá Nilson,
Sharpness- and color-wise this photo's absolutely excellent, plenty of dteails on the insect and on the flower. Elegant framing, too. What I like less is the background noise - pity You didn't remove it with software. I'm not an insect specialist at all, so please don1t laugh me for this question: is it a dead insect or a living one? Because its pose seems strange a bit.
Noise here or there, I like the pic, because everything else was done perfectly, and as 'Alex99' said, color palette of the photo is unbelievable.
Tfs, friendly regards from Hungary, László
