It took 2 days to get this guy even with the temptation of grape jelly....speaking of, how do you guys feel of the morality of using attractants like jelly and honey?
Oh, I did try to ply my grey card for a custom white balance but that will take some pouring into the manual unless someone knows off the top of their heads for the Lumix GH4.

Sounds to me like a win-win: you get the picture, the bug gets a meal!

As long as the situation is clear to the reader, no problem.

I like the big version over on Flickr, by the way -- lots of detail in the eyes (and elsewhere).

Haha! Win-win, true that!
Hey, if you know how to find or attract hornets spill the beans.

Attractants (bait) are fair game as far as I'm concerned. If you want intact Drosphila, just put a dish of wine outside. The fly gets drunk and you get a clean specimen.
You can look for wasp trapping methods at https://www.google.com/search?hl=en&source=hp&biw=&bih=&q=Wasp+attractants&gbv=2&oq=Wasp+attractants&gs_l=heirloom-hp.13..0.5484.9563.0.13172.16.13.0.1.1.0.422.1952.0j1j2j1j2.6.0....0...1ac.1.34.heirloom-hp..9.7.2077.3eLr9z3WKSU

Since many wasps like nectar, the most popular bait seems to be jelly (jam) dissolved in water.
