three wasps and a butterfly

Posted by
Emanuel Högberg (Borås, Sweden) on 26 August 2011 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

The flying wasp was caught on a separate photo, but I couldn't resist merging the two.

Canon EOS 500D 1/800 second ISO 100

All comments are very much appreciated, good or bad, though I might not answer each and every one I'll take a look at your photoblog if you have one. It's always nice to be inspired by others, so let me know what you think :)

Fear of wasps give me ... I keep a bad memory of their bites ... but in this picture are beautiful ... Meeting in nature ... making spectacular ... Butterfly and her servants ... Maybe?

Svar: Japp, jag har fotat bilden "Cigarette smoke" själv... alla bilder på bloggen har jag fotat. Vad roligt att du gillar bilden. Hur jag hittade din fotoblogg vet jag inte riktigt, jag surfade runt på fotobloggar och tror att du hade skrivit en kommentar hos någon. :)

Ha en bra dag!
