Waspy by johnnyfrs

Waspy

Waspy has been bathed, blow dried and now put to bed!
Yes I am serious the last wasp I shot was dirty, so this one got a bath!
Next time I will bathe him longer as he is still a bit dirty, but I think I did a good job, have you ever bathed a wasp! ;-)

Thank you for the great comments on yesterday's bokeh shot, you are all brilliant.
This gave me a heart-attack! thanks John! haha nice shot though :) Hope the wasp had a nice spa day ;)

I think washing a wasp deserves a fave - although this gets one for the amazing close up - fantastic shot
December 4th, 2011

December 4th, 2011  
Well it's an excellent shot but maybe getting a bit creapy if you're bathing your victims...
December 4th, 2011  
Great close-up, John. Amazing . . did you thank you for the "free wash?"

Great macro! I can't believe your bathing your wasps, John! Too much time on your hands :) A fav, just for the bath!
December 5th, 2011  
Fantastic macro!!!!!!
December 5th, 2011  
such an amazing macro shot!
December 5th, 2011  
Now I know what you were telling me John. This is the cleanest wasp I've ever seen. Makes for super Marco. Fav for sure!
December 5th, 2011  
Wow!! Now that's a macro shot! Great job!
December 5th, 2011  
Fantastic closeup
December 5th, 2011  
Are you an insect collector??? lol Bathe one, I think it would fall apart, but it looks like you did a nice job and a great photo :-) I would have not even known he was dead :-)
December 5th, 2011  
What kind of gel did you use on it's mohawk? Kidding aside, fantastic shot!
December 5th, 2011  
AWESOME!!!!! I have tried shooting a dead fly and it looks nothing like this. Maybe it ws because I didn't bathe him... hahahaha. My friends did think I was a little weird when I went over to their office to collect dead insects off thier window.... but I think washing them takes the cake :) Great shot. Definitely puts mine to shame :)
December 5th, 2011  
Amazing closeup! How do you bathe a wasp?
December 5th, 2011  
Whoa! That is one clean - and amazingly detailed - wasp! Nice job on this one!
December 5th, 2011  
Woah! Ok John, I think maybe you need a holiday or something!!!! This could be the most bizarre thing I have heard of on 365 but as you went to all the bother of bathing a wasp & the macro is awesome I would have to fav this shot :)
December 5th, 2011  
Holy shit!
December 5th, 2011  
Was it alive while you bathed it??? Cool close-up!
December 5th, 2011

December 5th, 2011  
Amazing - both the shot and the bath!
So what are you going to tell your colleagues you did this weekend....?!
December 5th, 2011  
Wow, have heard it all now! Stunning details!
December 5th, 2011  
Fantastic close up! Apparently the markings on their faces are very important in the wasp social structure too... Congrats on being popular :)
December 5th, 2011  
Amazing detail! Lucky you cleaned it so the detail wasn't obscured.
December 5th, 2011  
Fantastic close-up. Did he put on sunglasses for this shot haha?

December 5th, 2011  
I am blown away by shots like this! Truly amazing. (Good you only shoot clean wasps, too! HA!) FAV
December 5th, 2011

Very cool!!!!
December 5th, 2011  
Woah!
instant Faved.
...top close up action, you did a great job with this, very impressive mate.
December 5th, 2011  
I have never bathed a wasp, I have never even thought of bathing a wasp. I seriously recommend that wasps be dead, such as your wasp!
December 5th, 2011  
Yikes! Is it alive? This is so darn close. Is that a tongue hanging out? ACK!!!
December 6th, 2011  
Wash ing a wasp...something I'd never think I would do or COULD do without it falling apart. Its eyes are like leather, the drooping antennae so cool...the "blow out" on the hair...to die for. I take it he did die for it.
December 6th, 2011  
Wow, amazing picture! Congrats on the pop page
December 6th, 2011

December 6th, 2011
