Wasp Images By Mike Semple
Welcome to my WASP hub, now unlike the bee, these little critters are nasty, devious and down right vicious if upset.
Doing photography i love the buzz (excuse the pun) of getting a image thats outstanding, its hard to describe, you want it to be the best shot youv'e done, then you think youv'e done it. But photography never lets you win that easy, you pick up a magizine and wham someone's done it better. So its a cycle of dispair. Saying that the images below and on the video turned out really well considering it was only by chance that i was able to take them.
I was off work, just made some eggs and bacon and i had a rasher left, so i though id'e let the birds have it, so i hung it on the bird feeder bracket.
Well it was beatiful day so i decided to sit in the garden and have a coffee, when i noticed a wasp sitting on the bacon, then another appeared and before i knew what was happening eight or nine of these little flying mauraders where at the bacon.
So i decided to try and capture them with the camera, using my 70-200mm len, i stood very still about 2 foot away from the bacon and the wasps to capture most of the images.
I gave up when one landed on the camera body, dont like them that much.
So enjoy the images and watch where you put your rubbish, these little critters will eat anything by the looks of it.
