Well done. I think I would have cropped more (if the image quality would hold) in order to get the yellow jacket facing into the frame instead of out of it. But... well done!

Nicely done--I wish the center could have a little more DOF, but you got the wasp, and that's what's most important.

I was thinking more about 'an assassin in disguise' since wasps are known as being predators rather than pollen gatherers.

Nice macro tho.

Lovely macro. Looks like he's wearing shades.
