Wasps residing in Andersonville, Georgia. These guys were very patient and didn't seem to mind too much my sticking a camera in their face.

I wanted to shoot these guys close up too. But I'm not really that into benadryl! You are either braver or more insane than I am! It's a great shot. You can almost read their serial numbers.

Ha, ha! More insane maybe? I don't know, I've just always had good luck shooting wasps. They never seem to be too bothered. Like the ones that were in the fender of my truck... how they ran to the back of the nest instead of attacking. Or even threatening.

I hate wasps

Wasps just really don't bother me that much. Of course, let one sting me a it would be a different story! But, a couple weeks later I would go back to them not bothering me that much. None of the wasps I have ever dealt with have been especially aggressive, and they have been very good about letting me photograph them.

Now black widow spiders... I hate.
