Hi Ignasi, splendid nestm of wasp with great details, excellent composition, very well done, ciao Silvio

Buenas Ignasi
El otro día descubrimos (mejor dicho localizamos) un nido de avispas en una madriguera de conejos abandonada, e impresionaba el número que había.... con un poco de lógica decidimos abandonar ese lugar más que nada por salud....
En tu foto se aprecia un gran corazón de panal.... y todas a lo suyo. Yo me pregunto quizás un poco más de profundidad de campo hubiera sido posible para tener enfocadas las avispas de abajo. Velocidad tenías de sobra y pudiste arriesgar con otros diafragmas si hubieras tenido trípode..?
Un saludo y gran foto y documentada también.
