    You take such fantastic photos! I try to take some myself, but they can’t compare to these. You really show the true beauty of nature in your pictures.

      Thanks Sara. When you know what works it’s really just a matter of practise. Well, not ‘just’.

    Yeah, you’re probably right. Though I’ve had previous encounters with wasps that make me think – stay away! But then again, those were times when I accidentally stepped on or sat on them! LOL!

      Yeah, respect isn’t fear. We know the little creatures don’t reason so give them a wide berth, or become as one with them – by dropping your fearful nature.

      Some creatures, from deep bush, ‘command’ respect and one doesn’t dare intrude. Give them their space. And be careful not to bump into them. ((:

    Dear mark

    A beautiful little wasp that was lucky to land on a friendly finger! Probably 90% of people would react with terror an leave only a reddish spot where he was. This way we all get to appreciate it up close.

      G’day Jim. Isn’t it strange, the primary reaction of people to nature is fear. Fear turns to panic and the poor creature, not knowing what’s going on, defends itself as it knows how – which is then used to justify the fear, and round we go.

    Amazing details, Mark! Most people would have swatted instead of lending it a finger! Is it not a wasp?!

      Thanks for comment. Yes, it is a wasp.

      It doesn’t make sense to be afraid of our nature. It is ours, isn’t it?
