Bald Faced WaspTo view more of my photography please click on

Personally I am not a fan of wasps, only their impressive appearance. My apologies to a certain film franchise that has been with us since the 1970’s, for this very close resemblance to one of their fictional otherworldly soldiers. In fact I suspect that many science fiction endeavors looking for aliens turn to entomologists for advice.

  3. Getting a close view of the little one is like getting a big view of our world. Who scares who? 🙂

  4. Aren’t you brave getting close to this guy! While handsome, they are evil tempered and their stings are the worst. Great shot and yes, I think many movie aliens are based on insects, and reptiles, too.

    • Bravery has nothing to do with it. I do not threaten them even if close and to get closer I crop my final photo. I sure do not want to get stung. But you can get quite close. Thanks
