Notes from the field, essays, and observations.
Another insect on a Black-eyed Susan:
Although they are a wasp, I think this species feeds on flowers and doesn’t sting, unlike many of its stinging, predaceous cousin wasps.
Wonderful capture and detail!
Thanks, Lemony – this was an unusual opportunity to capture an ordinarily busy bug at rest.
Scary looking – awesome shot.
Wow! Great image, really nice detail, and beautiful background.
Yay to not stinging! Great shot.
People are easily spooked by wasps – even non-stinging vegetarians! Glad you liked it.
Once stung, twice wary. 🙂
I’m unwary, I haven’t been stung in a very long time. But then there’s mosquitoes, ticks, biting flies… Hymenoptera, happily, haven’t been a problem.
Ah, the glories of nature. 🙂
That’s a stunning capture
Thanks – I was very lucky to find it in this great pose in overcast light.
this is so so awesome 🙂
