Wearing stripes and spots together by 888rachel

Wearing stripes and spots together

I had to google this one, and it turned out to be a banded wasp. It was absolutely non-threatening, very unlike many other types of wasps I have photographed.
That' a brave move in todays fashion conscious world

What a bug! And I like how you've captured his "style" so clearly, while his "sensors" are clearly at work.

Great capture, I was always taught never to wear stripes and spots together but I think I will, he carries it so well!

Such a cool looking insect. Too bad it's a wasp -- glad you weren't in danger of a bite! Looks a bit like it's wearing a clown costume.

Wow very striking markings - and with the orange legs. Quite a fashion statement from that wasp.

Great macro! He's like a cartoon character. I think your caption led me there.
