Digger wasp collecting sweat

Post by rjlittlefield »

I normally see these things hunting, but I guess in this case I was a more convenient source of something to drink!

Photographed on the knee of my nylon hiking pants. :D

I like this, focus is right where it needs to be and the depth of field is pretty much right on. All but that one antennae though... :lol: I have yet to take a shot of anything where I have gotten both of them things in focus. :roll:

Thanks, Ken.

I was intrigued by this one's way of using its antenna, holding one flat down on the fabric. The other one is sticking almost straight front. I think I might have another shot with both antenna in focus, but then nothing else is!

Antenna...well it is that dof thing again. I get the bug in focus and maybe one of the antenna, but sometimes the antenna can go completely off the picture plane they are so long.
