[Ligne directrice - Note] Note du photographe

After sucking the blood of the caterpillar the wasp was seen flying and trying to find out the caterpillar. For a brief period of about someseconds i could see it was sharpening or washing its teeth/mouth. All I had was a split second to capture this moment. Thanks for watching.

Hi gannu,
Good shot,good focus also, but i feel a bit of focus is less on the left side.

Hello Ganesh,
Beautiful close up of this wasp. It is difficult to capture such agile creature with great sharpness & details of the mouth parts. TFS

Hello Ganesh,
this is very interesting portrait of this insect!
Very nice composition, vivid colors and blured BG.

Best regards, Leonid

Wonderful vivid colors!
The light helps to see details, even the little hairs of the insect and this makes this photo very alive. Great..

Hello Ganesh,
Amazing macro. Excellent use of DOF and sharpness on eye is perfect. Nice light falling on his/her left side. I personally would have liked to use flash to give even more details. Well done. Regards - Adil.

Hi Ganesh,

If you sucked the blood of a caterpillar you would wash your mouth out too! Fantastic macro of this Wasp - the face and eye are magnificent. He is so colorful - looks more like a child's toy than an insect. You reacted quickly and had great timing to get this unique shot.


Hi Ganesh,
I hoped we would get another look at this interesting wasp.
Its a species I've never seen before.
Do you know what it is? Some kind of Hornet perhaps ?
Its a bit scary looking (I walked into a couple of big wasp nests when I was a kid on Niue in the Pacific Islands and got very badly stung)
Your capture of it is excellent...perfectly sharp where it counts,and you've even managed pretty good DOF at F/7.1
I'd be interested to know what it is if you find out.
I'll have a search too.
TFS & Cheers,

  • Great
