Here's a little green bottle type wasp I snapped in October. It was brilliantly colored, but impossibly tiny. You can see it next to a Varsity disposable fountain pen nib to get an idea of the scale. Click either picture to embiggenate. Nifty stuff. (The reason I was able to photograph this little guy is I came outside and found him awash in the doggies' water bowl, so I fished him out and he hung around on this concrete wall long enough for me to run get my camera while he dried.
One of these days I'll get a better handle on the intricacies of my camera. Was going to liken my camera skill set to the Wright Brothers suddenly manning the helm of a 747, but I think to do so would be to insult Mssrs. Orville and Wilbur. Oh well, one of these days...
Today will be a gorgeous day. I hope get a picture of a Texas graveyard with an 19th century alien grave. Srsly. Pictures tomorrow. :) Watch this space.
Wow! I've studied the 'Anagros Epos', a beneficial parasitic wasp in Viticulture...but I've never seen anything quite so small as your wasp...enchanting!
A jillion chiggerbites...isn't modern technology fascinating?
The wasp is beautifully colored!
I can't wait for the alien grave...spooky.
Cute lil biter, ain't it? And we have alien graves all around Houston. Oh, wait. I bet you meant all the way from Mars kinda alien as opposed to all the way from Juarez kinda alien. Okay, I'll sit down and shut up now.
