    Thanks for the info Mark.Maybe it is like the pictures one takes of dragonfly eyes, the dark spot is always changing. Anyway, insect eyes are fascinating to me. :) Yeah, I’m weird!! LOL!!

      Not weird, just natural. It’s the others are weird. (:

    Brilliant shots Mark. What amazes me is the difference in the spots of the eyes. Do you think it is the camera angle which does it? Is this a potter wasp?

      Hi Joan. I really can’t say about the difference in spots but I suspect it is to do with the point of view. It’s a native Aus paper wasp, about 1/2 inch long and not at all aggressive, except, of course, in defense of the nest.
