Woo. I have never seen wasps so daunting as these. And hope I never do. Impressive photos.
great shots! Looks a little bit like a fellow from outerspace:)
They do look like aliens...
They are not too bad unless you disturb them...
Amazing shots - well done, you! It is weird seeing insects up close and personal - they really do like something from a Sci-Fi movie. Wasps' nests are astonishing things - quite beautiful. But though I know that wasps do a valuable job, I really can't feel that warm and cuddly about them.
Gorgeous....what beautiful creatures. I have wasps in the garden each year.......I leave them alone, they leave me alone :)Everyone is happy............
I agree- live, and le live!
i guess they're like chinese wasps... they look terrorific!
love the word 'terrorific'!
They look rather ugly !
beauty is in the eye of the beholder...
Too bad they are so aggressive. They are certainly creative! Fascinating, Jandi, thank you so much for sharing. :)
they are wonderful builders!
Wow, you use your macro lens well - beautiful close ups. Wasps I generally would stay away from!
thank you Jeanette- a macro lens is on my wish list...
Wow, amazing Makros, so clear and detailed insects!
thank you so much Christine!
Absolutely great macros. Love the second one in particularMollyxxx
Thank you Molly! x
Fascinating, but I wouldn't want to get so close.
they are very interesting to watch!
Great close ups. We have them here and they are the biggest pests-constantly building nests by our doors,under the picnic table, inside the grill cover,inside the folds of the umbrella...We spray and spray and they still come back to the same spots year after year.
I don't like using sprays... these are not aggressive unless disturbed.
What a pity that these beautiful animals are so aggressive. I love your pictures showing us their creativity.
Hi! Your macro pictures looks so sharp and beautiful. Beautiful colours! These red wasps looks so different what we have here in Finland.
Wow the pictures are beautiful.Barbara
Beautiful shots, especially the third one with the wasp against the blue! I'm fascinated by the paper-y nests... too bad they're so dangerous to bring home, they really are a work of art...
Interesting and beautiful pictures you have made, Jandi. And what I can see is, that this creature looks like a liitle monster. I don't want to get a sting of it.
we need them, even if we don´t like them. Great shots and take good care of them.
Fantastic! Your macro's are impressive.
Fantastic close ups! You have a good hand with the camera. That's for sure!Have a nice week and thanks for your kind comments on my post.Jannicke
Fascinating, beautiful photos! I'm quite scared of wasps though, because I got stung a lot when I was a child. How brave of you to take macros of them!
beautiful pictures...of a not very nice insect.
Wow... Talk about up close and personal lol Great pictures!
Really gorgeous Pictures!
WOW! These are amazing, Jandi!! These wasps both scare me and fascinate me at the same time. Their nests are pefectly formed. This post was like taking a nature walk!!
