Ciao Matteo,

What a lovely macro shot with the cristal drops above on the wasp.
Fantastic colour, real a lovely picture.
Very well done.

Have a nice weekend,

Ciao Matteo,
una splendida macro con ottimi dettagli, la rugiada sugli insetti è affascinante e ci offre immagini inconsuete, eccellente POV e composizione molto piacevole con le antenne che formano un arco spettacolare.
Grazie e complimenti
Buon fine settimana
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Matteo !
Wow, this is amazing ! Looks like the wasp is covered in pretty jewels ! :-) You have really captured every little detail with skill and talent, and I also like the very natural colors, the vertical composition, the POV from above. It's a gorgeous picture. Very well done !

amazing sharp pic, TFS Ori

Hello Matteo,
Great photo of this wasp with 'bubbles'. It has to shake its body. Excellent photo in beautiful colours and superb sharpness. Good POV and composition.

Ciao Matteo,siccome non mi e' mai capitata dal vivo una situazione del genere,mi sono spesso chiesto se chi fa queste foto non toglie gli insetti dal freezer e li fotografa in fase di scongelamento..eehehe...una macro di altissima classe e livello,gran scelta del POV e perfetti dettagli...complimenti e buon weekend,Luciano

Hi Matteo
Another beauty from you!
Great drops of water on your great Vespula .
Details and colors are perfect!

Hello Matteo,
Excellent macro with very good sharpness and colours.
The water drops are like cristal drops.
Great composition and good details.

Che colpaccio Matteo! Una soluzione in verticale davvero felice con ottimi colori e gradevoli effetti dai grappoli di gocce. Benissimo!

ps. Sto valutando se acquistare la D300s. Cosa ne pensi considerando la tua D300? Grazie e passa una buona domenica.

Hi Matteo,
very beautiful bug well seen with lovely dew on its body. the droplets are wonderfully featured and it gives aucgh an outstanding and special composition to your presentation.
Really special and amazing view.


Hallo Matteo
My time on Trek Nature is very limited now a days and I missed out on some great images. I am very glad to now find the time to visit a few postings like this wasp all covered in dew making a striking image to look at. Each dew drop is totally different from the other and displays beautifully now matter what is part of the background of it, whether it being the black and yellow stripes of the wasp's body, the shiny and detailed veins on the wings or the pitch black of the curved antennas. All is just great. I would love to capture anything which is drenched with dew drops like in your image as the outcome is always spectacular. Thanks for sharing and best regards.
