Good depth of field and great composition, especially in the first photograph. It takes a lot, well you know what I mean and some big ones :lol: , to get that close to a wasps nest for a shot. :D

I like the lighting on the wasp nest. The one wask in the shadows is very neat IMO. They do look very aware of you being there :shock: Both are excellent Craig.

Neat shots. the wasp are a Polybia species. I suspect those are not eggs on the bug but mites instead.

When I saw your wasp pictures, I was glad I chose something nice and safe to photograph, like cactus spines. Good shots craid.
