this is a wasp i photographed yesterday on the firetrail, hanging upside down from the nest ..
i've combined the wasp with a photograph of a spider on his web, also taken on the firetrail .. added a grungy border ..

Very cool effect you got with combining the two pictures. I like the size variance in the wasp and spider. Such detail on the wasp too!

Well you've managed to show us either the spider's worst nightmare or her greatest food fantasy. Either way you have become an astounding artist. This is really fantastic work.

What a great way to start another side challenge, Roz. You are the master of combining images to make them into so much more than they are on their own.

OMG, this is wonderfully menacing! The creepy orange wasp parts jump right out of the image, yuk, and combining it with the spider is brilliant!

Has a very surreal, sci-fi feeling to it. Nice work.

WOW - that totally tells a story. Killer editing!!!

This reminds me of "Aliens vs. Predator". Two very creepy things pitted against each other.

So cool, love the processing... it's amazing what you do with these images you take. And I TOTALLY hate (a) spiders and (b) wasps. Wonderfully done, I want to look :)

Yikes - one scary little dude.

Certainly sinister, and intriguing too - it takes a while to figure out what's what here. Very fine.

Roz - well done for getting your first image in - it's a CORKER!

I love the rich colours.

It's a really sinister image (sort of - GRIN!) - I'm not sure which the lesser of two evils are, who do I want to hang out with? Wasp - Spider? Neither - GRIN!
