Vespula germanica - European Wasp.


I learned a valuable lesson whilst photographing these dudes.. Even when dead, they are still capable of inflicting a nasty sting that itches for days after!

I learned that lesson when I was a little child. It was a nasty lesson too! One I will not forget.

This is a very cool shot although he looks rather menacing!

As always, beautiful details in the snap. The wasp does look menacing!!

You're kidding! What did you do,pick it up by the sting? Nasty... great close up shot though.

Now that's a valuable life lesson! Good to see you again - seems that you've been busy in the time I haven't been here. Look forward to my daily visits here once more.
