Hi Taner,
I'm not sure either but I'm more inclined towards the wasp although I find the body so velvety!
Very nice colors, good sharpness and DOF.

Hello Taner! Ideal shot. Perfect capture. Very good contrast. Very good light, bright and colours. Good work. Well done!

Selam Taner Bey:)
This is realy a wasp, indeed "Common Wasp Vespula vulgaris queen(Adi Eşek Arısı kraliçesi).
Çok iyi yakalamışsınız. Detaylar ve bakış açınız harika. Elinize sağlık.
İyiki sizi sokmadan çekimi gerçekleştirmişsiniz. Allah korumuş:)
Selamlar ve teşekkürler.

Ps. yazdıktan sonra dikkat ettim de. İngilizce başlayıp Türkçe bitirmişim:) Kaptırdım kendimi.

HI Taner
Our bees have been replaced by snow so its refreshing to see
hornet which looks pretty sharp. You are brave to get so close as they really go a good job of stinging.
