Marvelous shot, Susanne. You got close enough for me too! lol I am awed by all the variegated colorations in the nest. What construction! Thanks for taking this. I hope no Susanne's were injured in the acquisition of this photo. lol

You will be led to the knowledge of the internal things which are invisible to you, by the external things which you see before you. . . . Even so then, we can represent to ourselves in thought the Author of all that is, by contemplating and admiring the (visible) things which He has made, and ever brings into being. - Hermes

You're right! There's the guardian at the gate, just daring you to disturb this nest that's sure to be a mistake!! I don't blame you. I get rid of these pests when they set up shop on my house as soon as I can!! Stings of fire..great shot!

Wow, this is great, I love the depth of field it has. And the fact he looks like he is about to fly out at me if I get to close to the screen :-]

They don't like being disturbed! Hope it is not too close to the house or else you will need professional help if you want to get rid of it. Great capture!

Fascinating detail shot... the striations in the nest 'paper' are really interesting. And I'm glad you didn't have to get so close to take the picture!

Great shot. Perfect timing to capture the guardian of the house on the look out or is he just coming out for a smoke??!!

This is impressive - I've never seen anything like it. You've done a beautiful job capturing the texture of the nest and the little wasp looking in your direction. Great capture.

Good photo! I got stung by one of these once. Guess what? It hurts. Was my fault though because I was a kid and teasing them.
Thank you. Allen
