They are hard to get Fons - but patience usually pays off. Great Shot

Is Wasp alive?

I hope I will apologize for, but wasp seems dead to me.

Dead wasp

What gave you the impression that the wasp is not alive?

The wasp looks slightly dead to me as well Fons. Last year I spent several days just photographing wasps I will perhaps put one on the site.

Well you guys , you have a good eye .

The wasp was giving me hack off time while I was working in the garden, I wacked him with a towel and he fell into a pot with flowers. I could not resist to make a picture .....;-( I hope you will excuse me for doing so.
