Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-09
The suggester says, *DeadOhioSky77's You are not alone in this is "Of the most beautiful expressions of macro photography - the miracle of life in an integrated form. Unlike similar themes from the life of insects, this photo includes both the guardian paper wasp and the larvae in a breathtaking composition where theme, colors and macro details are in perfect harmony!" ( Suggested by Lucineia and Featured by 3wyl )
:iconphirmament:
perfect insect macrophotography.
The shown picture perfectfully reflects a net of wasps of different lifeperiods (larvae, adult) and its natural state(I cant be 100 percent sure if this is a young colony started by a newly mated queen but quite alike). Main part, the larvae (pointing out the theme of 'baby nature') was shot such skilledly carefully that you feel just like on your palms the meaty, transparent touch of their roly-poly fatty bodies. And of course the net rooms of octagon, the adult individual nursing and nurturing. Background was chosen as simple and dim, in order to feature the central theme.
If there has to be any visual 'inconvinience', I presume that shall be the somehow unbalanced position arrangement, slightly causing the visual center of mass too 'leftside-tending'. Nevertheless should this be on purpose, no need to care.
Love it a lot! Especially to an animal-lover like me!

This is just incredible. It's so beautiful yet it invokes a fear. It's an amazing shot; I mean I don't know many people who would risk getting stung for a photograph! The risk was sure worth it. I hope you didn't get stung, though! I can't believe it came out so clear. You can really see all the amazing details such as the nest texture, wasp eye pattern, and larvae details. The wasp looks so cool and the color is fantastic! It mixes so nicely with the rest of the piece. I'm not sure what I don't like about this piece, as this has been more of an extended praise than a critique (sorry). Maybe the background is a bit understated. I see how the nest and wasp is the main subject of interest but it's pretty much just blank. But this is such an amazing picture I can't get over it. Excellent job.

This had me thinking of a cartoon that I saw in a magazine years ago. A female wasp is talking to her husband and saying, "That does it, George! I'm going home to mother and taking the grubs with me!"

Wasp larvae is the nastiest thing I've ever seen in my life... I almost threw up when investigating those XPPP My chickens LOVE to eat them, though.

But nice shot C: Way closer than I'd ever be to a wasp nest XD
