Hi TL friends. Today I've a wasp, of the cosmopolitan genus Polistes.
Are the most familiar of the polistine wasps, and are the most common type of paper wasp. It is also the single largest genus within the family Vespidae, with over 300 recognized species and subspecies. Their innate preferences for nest-building sites leads them to commonly build nests on human habitation, where they can be very unwelcome; although generally non-aggressive, they can be provoked into defending their nests.

Hi Ioannis,
This is a very nice macro of this insect with great details and clarity , even with that noise. The colors are excellent, with a nice diagonal in the position of the insect. Very well done.

Nice shot of this wasp. I have plenty of these since I feed sugar water to the hummingbirds & they are ever present on the feeders. I was only stung once in 30 yrs & that was when I sat on one! They do tend to get mean in the fall, maybe they sense their end coming. Donald
