Wonderful captures Brian. I don't know how you get on the wasps with the MP-E, they are too mobile for me.

Brian,
Neat. I like how you've captured the water being drawn up as they get drinks from it.

Thanks all for the comments :)

Steven - not water but sugar/honey drops I often use in Winter to attract the few insects that are about.

Love the Digger wasp, his eyes are so big for his size. :)
