Wispy Waspy

Day 185 - 03/08/20

Today I went to visit my Mum @serendypyty which was really nice. We sat out in the back garden by her Salvia plant which had loads of bees and wasps collecting pollen and eating nectar! One of the wasps came close to where I was sitting and I got this great shot! I absolutely love how his little tongue is sticking out. He is very slightly (I think) out of focus. Its either that or because he's so fluffy/shiny, he just looks a touch out of focus.
Great close up shot.

@wakelys thank you! I'm getting less and less nervous to get close to bees and wasps now which is great!

I used to be very frightened of bees and now not so much... not sure I want to get near a wasp though.

@kvphoto well, as far as I'm aware I'm not allergic to bee or wasp stings so I guess the worse that can happen would be to be stung. I'm not saying that it wouldn't hurt, but it shouldn't kill me lol! I just got as close as I could to it and then panicked and moved away quickly!

@tiredpanda I know that panic in regard to wasps and yellow jackets... they scare me... they are vindictive.
