Larose Forest

For the August Challenge -"It Caught My Eye".

The pollen drenched wasp caught my eye as I was looking at goldenrods for insects to photograph. Even the face is covered with it.

To see what catches the eye of others in the August challenge:

Panasonic DMC-FZ2000
1/100s f/3.3 at 13.5mm iso125 full exif

other sizes: small medium large original auto

This is a great shot! Historically Yellowjackets and I have not gotten along at all well. But I do feel for this guy. :-)

A beautiful shot! It's this time of year it seems all the yellow insects are attracted to goldenrod.

Terrific close up. Now it’s really living up to the yellow in its name.

An excellent find...I wonder if they sneeze :)
Don12-Aug-2022 22:05
Do they gather pollen like bees do? Is that a pollen bundle in its mouth? But if so, there's a lot of pollen in places seemingly unintended! Excellent macro.

fabulous photography....yellowjackets can be aggressive, but you have portrayed this one most sympathetically..

Nice! V. I think these guys who have been feasting on the oleander aphid honeydew on my milkweed plants killed the little monarch caterpillars I discovered yesterday!

Wonderful close up with all this detail. I like all the pollen dust. "V"

Yes very nice a image of a diligent working insect, without them there is no food for us, so let us show great respect for these little benefactors, wonderful work Christine BV
