Nice & Sharp !

I know how difficult it is to get close to the insect and to focus on the right Millimeter in a verry short time frame ! This is also a good example that when shooting dark insects the background easily gets overexposed ! Nice shot !

Subject identification

Hi Sergio, I like the image but it's not a wasp. The insect is actually a hoverfly.

Thanks Malcom. I'm not an expert of insects

Superb shot. You might want to reduce a little bit the brightness in the flowers.
