  4. 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.

  13. 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.

    1. I don't like using sprays... these are not aggressive unless disturbed.

  17. 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...

  18. 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.

  22. 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!
