    Here's an example of the Brown Paper Wasp (Ropalidia revolutionalis), a common paper wasp seen in Australia. These little wasps aren't overly aggressive as long as you don't disturb their nests. They might be small (about 1 cm in length), but can still give a painful sting.

    That's amazing. It's so frightening. I wish I could see its idiosyncratic wings.

    Great clarity on those OP! Might dial the flash down a hair but thats just nitpicking.

    I just love the multi-lensed eyes on wasps! Thanks for the feedback

    Agreed about the flash. The little wasp didn't give me much time to tinker with the setting before it was off. I think I need to diffuse a little better also. I use a home made snoot for the pop-up flash that is a work in progress.

    Thanks for the feedback.
