I am presently in Nicaragua visiting my oldest daughter, but still trying to find time to view and comment here on TN. I am using my iPhone so the photos are small, but this shot looks great. The wasp is shown in good detail and beautiful colors. Attractively marked and perfectly exposed. The flower it is perched on is unique looking with it's tiny white flowers forming from the tiny green cabbage like base.
I have been trying to photograph a wasp nest here with many wasp on it, but am not satisfied with the results so far. I hope I can eventually get a wonderful shot like yours.
Very nice capture with perfect details and colors.
