PhotoSec: Wasp up close

Wasps in my opinion are like the sharks of the bee community. They just fly around with a singular purpose and they look cool and terrifying at the same time. Some say they are good for nothing and others say they help control the population of other types of insect pests. Regardless, I just don’t want them building nests on my house!

This wasp was hanging out on a leaf when I was out shooting some close up shots. I don’t have a macro lens and I didn’t have a tripod setup so getting this with my 200mm telephoto hand held was difficult. I did do some minor color alterations to this in LightRoom to give a more eerie look.
