Default Animal - Wasp

If we classify everything as either Animal, Vegetable, or Mineral, then the Wasp is an animal. Anyway I got stung about 25 times today so I decided to do a Portrait of one of the suckers.

It startled me at first! Outstanding shot. How'd you get him to stand still for the photo?

Well Cal, after half an hour in the freezer it had shuffled off its mortal coil.
To get that macro I used a reverse ring and my 28-300mm Sigma. I then focus stacked about 20 images.

Thanks all for your kind responses. For about $40 a reverse ring that fits your camera is a cheap way to have a lot of fun and create shots like this. My ring comes in 52mm size so step down rings are needed for larger lenses to fit. But any lens will do so its a way to be able to use any good glass at all.

Well, Paul, I guess we should be asking if you are OK after 25 stings. I got stung on a finger tip about 20 years ago and it hurt like h---!!
