Sometimes I photograph wildlife … Wasps are one of my least favourite creatures, however this one had either died or was busy drinking nectar …
So good photos 😀

Extraordinary contrast of colors.
yes, this one had more colours than the other shots I took … it’s also interesting to see in the 9 or so shots the different ways the camera interprets the colours due to slightly different angles
That’s something we art teachers try to teach young artists – that the “last dab of color” might not be the last, because it will impact the colors around it and might require attention to a new area of the painting. Of course, at some point a painting must be declared “done,” and you move on to a new work. You saw the effect in your photographs.
Very much agreed … I play it by ear, what feels right usually is …
Thanks for the reblog 😀
That’s a fine specimen, Don Charisma, well spotted 🙂 Have a good week, best of luck with your projects!
Thanks hun, and I almost didn’t spot, nearly jumped out of my skin as I was photographing the flowers …
Not surprised. The size of him… Anyway, nice to see your pictures, don’t disappear again:)
LOL, had a couple challenges been wrangling with, I’m never disappeared for long !
Just where I love my wasps in a photograph instead of my drink….. Lovely shot
LOL, you and me both !
Great shot Don 🙂
I don’t like wasps either, but your flowers cover the little one very well.
LOL, seems not many people do … I wonder why !
Yeah and I have allergy to their bites 🙂
I just don’t like getting stung ! Allergy wise you have to be careful I think …
Yes I carry medication against that very close.
I have a small first aid kit – I usually carry anti-histamine, along with a few other things when I travel, just in case …
Smart Don, I have an injection together with the anti-histamine too 🙂
be prepared 😀
Ooo…wasps are scary! But the colors here make me forget all about it!
plus the fact he/she is tiny ! well in the photo at least, thai wasps can be huge, I generally go the other direction if I see one, same as sharks …
OMG…ever since I saw Jaws when I was 16, I’ve been afraid to get in the ocean. You should’ve seen me in Mexico. It really took me a lot of time to get up the nerve to snorkel and I’m a very good swimmer! As long as it’s in a chlorinated pool with a line down the middle LOL
LOL, healthy respect of sharks, I’m the same … but I only ever saw one here in Thailand with all my diving, and I just saw in the other direction …
YIpes! I would be so freaked out. *insert jaws music here*
Good to see you are back. 🙂
Hey Babu, thanks my friend, light duties for the moment, couple of other projects are eating up my time !
Alright. Thanks for the reply, Don. 🙂
You’re always welcome my friend 😀
