[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was out photographing birds in Bahrain but there were not many around. I saw these large wasps in a small fruit garden and managed to get this picture. The garden is not well lit due to the amount of cover so I used the built in flash of the D200 to fill the picture. This was taken hand-held.

we dont have wasps like that in holland. really great macro.

Im not a big fan of people putting their name inside of the picture. and the copywrite sign means nothing. \if you dont want people to use it. dont post it on the net.

Hi Adrian,
Super awesome and unique capture with magnificent colors, details and subjects!

Hey ... for all you optimists, the reality is that the wasp is about to eat a honey bee!! Wonderful shot, hand held ... thanks to the built-in flash.
