Wasp On Mint Flowers


As the mint grows and flowering, I found so many different kinds of critters around this patch. It seemed that even flies love these mint flowers. In the above picture, this wasp was going for the nectar in the tiny flowers.


I was inches away from this wasp. They were flying all around me! There were honey bees, bumble bees, hornets, wasps, flies, moths, and butterflies. I felt as if I was at a concert in the park with all the buzzing sounds going on.


This picture didn't turn out as good as I thought, but it was interesting for me to see that little black line that connected the big bottom to the head part of this wasp!


This is a close up shot of the mint flowers! Is it beautiful?

  2. Breathtaking!!! I love the way you captured the wasp. We get to see his anatomy up close and personal and the flower is so pretty. I love the purple in it.

  4. Oh man these are great photos. You would not find me getting that close to a wasp though! :)

  5. Yes Mumsy, these mint flowers are beautiful, I've never seen them so close. Also, never seen with naked eye such a wasp carrying his back by a wire. I learn a lot day by day with the help of macros and this post is an example.

    Thanks for the idea of beginning to post for the gallery, starting from next month, really it doesn't make much sense to begin at the middle of the month, you are right.

  6. I have been trying to photograph my mint, so I am impressed that you have done so well! And the wasp is so interesting! I agree about the photo from above, looking at her tiny waist! That is simply unbelievable!! How do her internal organs function?

  11. Wonderful macro shots, the buggies do love the mint family flowers. Sounds wonderful to have them flying all around you.

  12. Goodness, you are extremely brave getting so close to all those stinging insects. I guess they were far more interested in the sweet nectar of those pretty mint flowers than they were of a two legged creature with a camera in front of her face!!
