A macro image of a European Wasp (Vespula germanica). I was a little nervous about getting up so close to this little guy. I hear their sting is super painful. He was quite a good model for me staying very still while I got up close with the necessary lighting to get this super clear shot. Unfortunately not still enough for me to be able to take multiple shots for focus stacking. I presume the europeans have all kinds of wasps and this is just one sort? We certainly do.
