I’ve not seen many wasps at all this year – this is only the second one I have been conscious of seeing this year.
I’m not a fan of wasps, nasty stingy things that get in your beer, but get a macro lens onto them and maybe they become things of beauty.
I love the colours on its head, I’ve never noticed reds on a wasp before, mind you, I’ve never been this close to a wasp before. This one was photographed in Chalkney Woods last Sunday.
I am so glad I got this macro lens!
And the title…yep – another line from a favourite song (and not the band):
“We’re W.A.S.P.s, yeah, proud American sons,
We know how to clean our teeth and how to strip down a gun”
It’s a bit tenuous, I know! This may become an ongoing “feature”.
