Brian, depth of field, focus and composition is spot on in the first picture, well done. I wish that the shadow was softer though.

Riaan, thanks for the comments. Good point about the shadow. This is basically out of camera from the D800, so there should be plenty of room to bring the shadow up. I'm planning to buy LR soon, so I'll take a crack at it as soon as I do.

Wow -- just saw a few of these in my yard today. What on earth are they? Never seen such a deep green before.

I'm not familiar with the species, but they're wasps - technically hymenoptera and not insects...  Wink  If you want to know more specifically, I'd suggest filling out an ID request at http://bugguide.net/

At the risk of quibbling with someone who has admittedly far greater knowledge of wildlife than I, Mike, hymenoptera are an order of the class of insects.

Hymenoptera?

That sounds dangerous! A greater disincentive than VD!

Thanks for the tip -- googling "green wasp" and browsing (which ended up back on bugguide.net) leads me to think these are cuckoo wasps, probably parnopes edwardsii. Not that I have any experience with insect IDs, but it sure looks alike.

Rather pedestrian but it still makes me smile. This was taken with my first digital camera, a 2.0MP Nikon 775.

You are certainly correct, Jeremy!  Just goes to show that I shouldn't respond to messages late at night when my brain has obviously disengaged!!  Thanks for pointing out the error.  Grin

The white spider in contrast with the dark fly really makes the shot.

Very nice! (And happy to see the thread brought back) I caught a mantis eating butterflies a couple of times last summer, but sadly didn't lead to any shots worth posting.
