Wasp Pictures (Round 2)

No dial up warning.

It was a bit cooler today so the nest activity was way down from usual. It was very difficult staining the front panels of my new stand while this entire group was buzzing around the garage. I decided to take some pictures now because my dad is going to destroy the nest before somebody gets stung.

I'm still fiddling with the manual settings on the camera so the pictures aren't exactly as crisp i want them to be. Not bad for only having the camera for a week or two though...





Low f-stop to overexpose the picture a bit. A good effect, but the focus is still a bit off. Focusing with the LCD is nearly impossible and the wasps were to high up to focus with the viewfinder.

canon A60 in full-manual.

they look nasty, but they look cool as hell too. if they could grow to the size and intelligence of a dog and didn't sting, I'd keep one as a pet!
