[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Yellowjacket, yellow jacket or yellow-jacket is the common name in North America for predatory wasps of the genera Vespula and Dolichovespula. Members of these genera are known simply as a "wasp" in other English-speaking countries. Most of these are black-and-yellow; some are black-and-white (such as the bald-faced hornet, Dolichovespula maculata), while others may have the abdomen background color red instead of black. They can be identified by their distinctive markings, small size (similar to a honey bee), their occurrence only in colonies, and a characteristic, rapid, side to side flight pattern prior to landing. All females are capable of stinging which can cause pain to the person who has been stung. Yellowjackets are important predators of pest insects.

Hello Nilotpal,
Well captured,very nice composition of this har working wasps with nice colors and good sharpness,details,well done and TFS
Best regards Siggi

Namaste Nilotpal,

Good spotting, but it's a bit overexposed in my opinion. I also think it would have been better to crop the too overexposed part from the left side alltogether, as I find it a little distracting and it would also centralize the composition a bit. Good attempt MF! I made a WS that may be help you what i mean!
TFS and have a nice day!
