If outstanding was not a sufficient adjective one must add awesome and incredible as further appropriate adjectives for your composition. One must add that the textural feel of the picture adds further to its visual impact.

Thanks Jan, like I said I like the way you say it.
The On1 filter adds the 'je na sais quoi' texture quite nicely. When
you or I see Wasps, we only see the iconic black and yellow stripped
body, which incites fear in most of us. I like to show the face of
that fear, and see that we have every right to fear these tiny
monsters. Haven't got stung yet.

That's in your face for sure. Very sharp. It's having a good meal too. I had wasps on my hand and fingers clawing up and down feeding leftovers food on my skin at outdoor cafes quite a few times but they don't bother me...I just let them have their way and enjoy watching their behavior! Weird or what?;-)
