Hi Nikos , this is an outstanding image , I like it as soon as I open it , firstly the moment captured with the wasp making its start to a new nest is simply fascinating , the texture of that nest is so clear I can feel it , the light and color very natural, one detail I really like here is the reflection of the nest in the insects eye , for some reason that keeps drawing my eye.
thanks for sharing it

I found your photo when trawling the site for images for my theme ""Animal Behaviour""
It is - together with your good notes - a very interesting testimony to the saying ""as busy as a bee/wasp...""
I was amazed to see you needed only 400th of a second without flash - because normally - wasps never sit still very long :-)) by the way their sting is extremely sore/poisonous (to suffer if you disturb them at the nest).
We also have paperwasps in South Africa and their nests vary slightly from area to area - but in principle look like the one in your photo.
I like the way you cropped the photo tightly, drawing all attention to the animal.
The great depth of field offers lots of details.
Splendid photo! Thanks.
Have a nice evening,
Regards from South Africa
