I hate those wasp. But in this composition they are wonderfull. Very good photo with good colours, and a freesing wasp. Very good note. Very good job.

That is absolutely superb. Magic. The one caught coming into land makes a great picture even better.

Was actually just about to shot down for to night and saw this one. Very sharp and beautiful details all over.
This is very, very good and I am sure it took a lot of courage to go in there. I can see from the WS that you dressed in a clever way - hope you got the bike out too ;-)).
I had one of these flying around in my bedroom a few nights ago and I was only dressed the way I was borne. So when I got out of my bed to make it fly out of the window it just went crazy and attacked me and gave me a sting on my stomach. Well, it died shortly after, splashed out all over the wall.

Shutting speed freezes the wing of the flying wasp.
Nice colors, too.

Outstanding result, Robert. Very crisp detail and colors, nice busy scene, and I'm particularly fascinated by the one just coming in to land. Great note and thanks for the WS, too, although I'm not sure I'd even want to attempt such a catch with that kind of protective gear :o)

You could have called this one "Zooming in" or "Heading Home" ;-))
Excellently sharp capture for a shot taken with those mittens on ;-)) Nice behavioural shot, I also like the one watching you from the nest.

Hay que tener coraje para acercarse a un panal de estos bichos Robert.
Excelente imagen, por su definicion y nitidez.
Muy buenos colores, sobre todo teniendo en cuenta que es una imagen nocturna.
Felicitaciones por una gran trabajo!.
PS: viendo tu WS retiro lo de coraje... jajajaja.
It is necessary to have courage to approach a honeycomb of these tiny beasts Robert. Excellent image, by its definition and clearness.
Very good colors, mainly considering that is a nocturnal image.
Congratulations by a great job.
PS: seeing your WS retirement the courage concept... jajajaja

RObert, it is remarkable to see what a photographer would do to get the right shot. That is what makes you one of the best here. Preserverence. (spelling?) Anyway... I not gonna try to name the features that impressed me. To much. This is a world class take. Congrats Brave Robert. And thanx for showing me what it looks like up close and personal.

Great shot Rob and good work getting them all in focus. You're much braver than me!

Wow! This is so 3 dimensional with that wasp about to land! I never realized there was so much variation in colour in a wasps' nest before. Great clarity, and I agree with the other critiquers--you were very brave to get in that close. Interesting to see the entrance with those beady little eyes sticking out. Interesting notes too!
