[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Insects in flight-20 :

The European Paper Wasp (Polistes dominulus, Haus-Feldwespe. Vespidae) appears to be flying in the sunbeam, "stairway to heaven". But in reality it is flying vertically, the movement of the wings being in a horizontal plane. The long hind legs push the wasp off at start.

Technicals: 1/4'000 sec, f/5.6, ISO 1'600, telelens 600 mm eq. , manual focus, serial shots, no flash, hand held.

Hallo Dieter,
Gar nicht einfach eine fliegende Wespe zu erwischen..super gute Schärfe und witzige Darstellung..fast wäre sie dir aus dem Bild geflogen.
