This wasp was floating dead in my pool (being friend of the lifeguard is very productive!)....took her home to get some shots... :D

Lovely!

Your Flickr post mentions "special diffusers" but I've forgotten what those are. Can you remind me?

Yep, I like it. The wasp is looking fresh and clean for a drowned insect.

Cleanest looking wasp I've ever seen. Love the shot. Excellent.

A picture is worth a thousand words, but it uses up a thousand times the memory.

Probably it was bathing when collected.

Thanx for your kind comments!

The diffusers are coming from industrial pro lights given by a friend (industrial engineer specialized in ilumination), plastic made and dremel cut to my needs :)

Here another view of the very same wasp... :wink:
