[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This potter's wasp is quite common on the mint patch in my yard. As you can see, he is quite wet. Wet insects tend to make good subjects as they are lethargic and do not move much. They are waiting for the droplets adhering to their bodies to evaporate so they can go about their business of gathering nector, etc.

A like the thought of a wasp being called a Potters, something with a local feel to it.
A tip to take detailed images with rain about.


Hi, Michael. Lovely photo of this beautiful flower and Potter's wasp's who are a very important part of our ecosystem. Sharpness, details and composition is excellent. Cheers.
