okay i´m weird for leaving two comments on the same picture, but i wanted to tell you about my paper wasps. i used to work at the bug zoo at the carnegie museum of natural history, which was the greatest job of all time. we had three tanks where we raised paper wasps, and we gave them dyed paper to make their nests. every week we´d give them a different color, so their nests were all sorts of bright designs. they´re fun to feed, too. very malicious creatures.

They certainly are beautiful and intersting. ;)

this time of year is so fun for taking pictures of bees and wasps. pick any flowering plant outside and it'll be covered in them. ^___^

Wow, nice detail ;) The background is a bit boring, but it's hard to take pictures of insects anyway :)

Is it just me or did you update it? :P
Looks really good now, but the leaf and it's shadow in front of him takes some attention away from the motive.
