WOW .. incredible detail ... what lens do you use for this? Apparently you were a bit away, since the wasp did not mind you there :laugh:

Thanks all for commenting.
Shot with 100mm macro lens + 36mm extension tube + ring flash.
Distance from lens to object about 10 cm. I don't mind to get close to bees or wasps, when they are busy doing something. Big mistake many people do, is to slap around when they come close.
