I posted the first shots a week ago; this is my second go at it.

1. Taken with an S95. The rest are with a 40D, 100mm macro.

2.

3. This shot and the next show a worker giving some special attention to what I'm thinking is the queen; I've noticed a few differences in this wasp: a) green eyes, b) anttenae that don't bend at the first joint, but curl near the tip, c) an extra section at the tip of the abdomen, d) slight difference in the structure of its "face". Any experts, please chime in ;).

5. This was taken later in the day (106 degrees in the shade). The wasps spend a lot of time with their heads in the chambers when it's hot. When one would fly off, it would return with liquid to share, and to place on the cap of the one covered chamber.

I seldom use a tripod for macro, but it worked well for for this subject; better focus using live-view, steady for slow shutter speeds at small apertures (for deeper DOF), less fatigue spending a lot of time on an uncomfortable surface, shooting at difficult angles. Love the horizontal center column!

Then I'm going in the right direction, thanks ;)

BTW, you may have noticed three capped chambers in the first set, and now there's only one. I would love to see a new wasp emerging, but I'd have to be very lucky.

Thanks, Brian. I've learned a lot about all kinds of critters since getting into macro. Knowledge that probably won't ever be of much use, but fun just the same :D.

Think watching what bugs get upto is half the fun of macro.
