Postcard Shot!

Eastern "Cicada Killer" Wasp, originally uploaded by zuctronic.

This shot was difficult to get right. First of all, the wind was gusting a bit so the wasp didn't want to sit still. To add excitement, I didn't know at the time that their sting was mostly harmless... so I kept jumping back to the amusement of onlookers. After several takes, this one turned out perfectly, exactly what I wanted.
