Last night when I was on a walk with Tara I photographed this beautifully colored wasp. This trip I did not carry all my gear that I usually carry, i.e macro flash, etc. Now I somewhat regret it. The lighting was really flat. I could have created more contrast with the background if I had my flash. Oh well. Still have a record of a unique insect. Shot with Nikon D3 and through the 105 f/2.8 macro lens. I don’t have the rest of the metadata with me but I do know that the ISO was 3200. Truly amazing technology these days…thanks NIKON!
