My wife found this wasp crawling out from under the back of my shirt after I finished cooking on the grill. It must have been trying to get warm.

Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F11, 1/250, ISO 200) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (2x to 4x) + a diffused MT-24EX. These are single, uncropped, frames taken hand held. I used a artificial flower to keep the background from being black.

Seems to me both you and the Wasp were extremely fortunate to have run into each other. :D

Lucky it didn't sting me when the wife screamed and knocked it out of my shirt! :)

These are excellent! I especially like the colors working together.

Thanks Frank! I've spent a lot of time experimenting with different background materials. Have pretty much settled on artificial flowers, and I shoot straight down into them to get some variation on the color. Here's an example where the background is just the artificial flower:
