_MG_0152 A Little Less Friendly

These wasps hover around the deck and dive bomb human visitors, so I took my longest lens with macro capability to capture this one, visiting a tomato leaf. They're way more intimidating than the blue mud wasps I frequently photograph as they feed on the nectar of my thyme plant blossoms. Update: Yesterday I discovered that for some inexplicable reason I had TWO UV filters screwed together on this lens! I'm removing both!

Great shot. I like how it has a foot in the air.

I just saw a cream colored one on my Marigolds that looked just like this one ! Not as agressive though
Nice Macro!

We have a lot of those nasty boogers around here. Keeps Maggie indoors and off her playset because she is so afraid of them.
