    Didn't see the little bug on the wasp untill I looked at the photo.. Anybody know what it is??

    Nide detail in the second one. Nice capture of the little bug. Isn't it amazing sometimes when you take a macro and all sorts of little creatures show up.

    to me, it looks like an egg. I might be wrong though.

    Also, I don't think wasp eggs have legs.

    Very cool shots. I've heard of mights that infest nests and wipe out the entire nest. I wonder if this is one of them...
