If you were patient enough, you could count every hair on that wasp's head. Impressive.

OK, Enough boring head shots. Lets see some action. Live dangerous. Lets see some tail with stinger and everything. Come on, get creative. I'll bet you have a dozen killer manatids that would love to eat that wasp.

I'll bet you could get some wagers. ;>;) k

Another super shot Scott! I'd love to be able to get this close to the local wasps, but alas...

MJ,Sorry, I hope I didn't pyo. I was just kidding man. I just thought it was funny that you were feeding your natural preditors pollen on a cricket. Seemed like it would be fun to post one near your feeding station. They might really like having a orange flavored bee for desert, and make for some pretty interesting shots.

Sorry, I hope I didn't
