    This gives me really great encouragement. I have a T1i as well and worry all the time that I'll never get photos that look like this one. It's beautiful. Awesome work. :D

    A very nice capture.

    Makes me think of the Organ Pipe Mud Dauber wasps we have here that capture spiders to feed the young. Our basement door has many nests on it.

    Very nice... If I can say anything... its that I wish the ant was more defined... Maybe its the angle.. I find he blends in to the background/wasp legs a bit. But nice capture!:thumbup:

    Denny - this is too good to be in the beginner's section. You should be posting these in the macro section so I don't almost miss it next time. This is a great shot and glad I stumbled into your thread.

    Thanks, all!

    I'll fess up, I never saw the ant when I took the shot. I was following the wasp around the flowers and took about 8 shots of it. I didn't notice this one until I reviewed them on my PC. The wasp flew away after this, so Ant wins by default.

    BuS RiDeR, yeah, I'd like that ant a lil' sharper too... but it does look a little better printed or viewed at full resolution.
