Camera Critters #61

A week or so ago, I was out shooting in one of my favorite areas. As I walked towards a wooded area, I moved through some wildflowers and notice a black wasp flying around. When it landed on a lone flower stem at the top of a short incline, I lifted my camera and snapped this shot.

For some reason, I really like the shot. I hope you enjoy my Blue Mud Dauber on a Tumble Mustard.

I don't think I have ever seen a black wasp! Great shot!

It's a beautiful image - especially with the black contrasting against the yellow flower.

Ummm I feel a little sorry for he wasp though - its butt is so heavy it has to rest it on something... hate when that happens ;-)

I've never called a wasp beautiful before--call this a first LOL. His shiny black balanced on the yellow and white flower is lovely. Congratulations on a great shot!
