Mischocyttarus Sp ¿Paper Wasp?

I'll make a stop at the butterflies! ... other insects are also worth I put them in TN! :)

Today I have this wasp ... is big, is beautiful, is red ... and do not like the pictures! ... sometimes attack when I want to take pictures!

I have no ID, I think it is a so-called "paper wasps" I'm pretty sure it belongs to the genus Mischocyttarus, because many of its features are similar to shot of wasps that genre. But, best I wait to see if any of the members of TN know the ID! :)

Tomorrow I will post another shot of this wasp but with other POV...

Thanks by stop and visit!

Hi Jesus,

Excellent macro shot with great sharpness, nice colors and details!

A decent picture of this athletic Delta hottentottum wasp, friend Jesus! A picture with pleasant dept of field beautiful point of view and warm colors. In my opinion you could crop the image slightly from left and bottom! Just an opinion of course! Good but not great image I think or may be I'm just trying to look like a teacher! Haa ..haaa.haa
Have a great day my friend!

Hello Jesus,
Might have been quite a struggle between you and the wasp, you wanting to take its photo and it wanting to attack you. :) Seems like finally u won.
Beautiful picture taken at a lovely POV that gives us a good look at this giant enjoying its feast. good details ad sharpness.
Thanks for the share,

Ciao Jesus, bella vespa ottima macro, anche se come sai a me piacciono di piiù le farfalle:), buoni dettagli e bbei colori naturali, bravo, ciao Silvio

Well focused.

Hello Jesus,
Wonderful photo in fantastic sharpness and impressive details. Great DOF, bright colours, POV and composition. Beautiful contrasting OOF BG.

Hola Jesús

Una buena imagen de esta especie de avispa, que da miedo según tu refieres, yo las he visto alguna vez.
Yo personalmente y como alguno te ha dicho, y como tu supestamente te imaginas, yo la habría recortado algo más, dejandola un poco más en primer plano aunque en fondo se hubiera visto algo punteado, de todas formas, buena toma.

Un saludo Antonio

Ciao Jesus. Perfetti dettgali e nitideza sull'insetto. Gradevfoli colori naturali. Il giallo in primo piano è bruciato. Ottimo lavoro in ogni caso!

Hello Jesús
An excellent, well-composed macro of this species of wasp while feeding on a flower.
The POV shows most of its features with superb sharpness, DOF and good lighting that brings out natural colours and the BG gives it a nice 3-D effect.
Thanks and have a good weekend my friend,

Precioso trabajo Jesús. Bien captadas tanto las tonalidades del insecto como de la flor. Excelente enfoque, con casi toda la escena dentro de él.
Eres sorprendente en todos los temas que tocas por tu buen hacer.
Sobre mi cámara no le des más vueltas :-) cuando quiere sale excesivo color, como en esta última o al revés. Dios proveerá !"*_!
Tu bichito, reo que se trata de la familia Sphecidae más que de la Vespidae, aunque no tengo seguridad, no soy experto.
En cuanto a las picadas, hoy me han puesto un brazo bien inflado de un tremendo picotazo, no se cual habrás sido la especie pero desde luego si la pillo no la respeto !
