Sometimes when I'm shooting a lethargic subject it will wake up and start going about it's normal routine. That's what happened while photographing this Saw Fly. The tricky part is tracking a moving subject when the frame at 4x is only 5.7mm wide by 3.7mm high.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (around 4x) + a diffused MT-26EX-RT with a Kaiser adjustable flash shoe on the "A" head (the key), E-TTL metering, +1/3 FEC, second curtain sync). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

I just saw the second picture is not very good. That's what happens when I upload from my iPhone.
This one is a bit better.

Is this not a bee, Dalantech? Perhaps a Lasioglossum species? It seems to have the yes and mandibles for it....

That's a funny pic with the flies. It looks like they are guardians of the plant.

What is that white bloom on the wasp?

Nice pics.

Fungus. Takes over the wasp via drugs - no kidding. Eventually will lead the wasp to a predominant feature where it will die and the fungus will spread its spores to the wind.

Wow. Scary. I hope a version for humans never evolves.

THE CURIOUS WASP

Not posted here frequently, apologies for the absence. Here's a European Paper wasp, Polistes dominula, on a mint spire in my garden.

Sharp and lovely lighting!

This proves you don't always need f/11 to get great macro shots.

Ya know, I don't comment on every shot here that I like because I don't have the time, as there are countless images here that I would be honored to add my name to. I personally like it when a large portion of the image is completely out of focus. That, coupled with the unique color combination of this critter, makes me really like this image. Overall great shot. Thanks for sharing.

Wheel Bug, very fascinating creature to me. Kind of the M-1 Abrams of the insect world.
