Two's company





Photo ops still few and far between, and mostly limited to the home grounds.
I'm grateful we have a good sized property and no neighbors to amuse with my squatting, bending, and sitting on the ground.

I did a little Googling and I'm calling these "blue-winged wasps".  They have a scientific name, but that's much to hard for my retired, keep-it-simple mind.  They feed on grubs and do not usually sting.

Wonderful images. I have never seen a bee do these. These are just great.

Terri said...

I don't think I have ever seen wasps hanging on to a barbed wire on a fence before..fascinating! Glad they don't sting, but they sure do have that vicious look about them.

Ida said...

Super photos and so fascinating to see the wasp on the fencing like that.

Wow, what a bug-beautiful photo session you had! How exciting that they all came to play for you!

I never thought I'd say this but I am... those are amazing 'bug' pictures. You did a fantastic job capturing them.

oh wow never seen this. And truly blue ones.

Oh wow I am amazed. My one friend she got bitten with our ones here. Her foot swelled terribly three sizes.

Right away infection set in. She is on bio tics at the nick of time. Her's were wasps. Yet still it hurts.

Oh be careful if they are killer bees. I hope you have the needle to inject yourself. Unless you are not allergic but your friends better be aware before they come.

oh Mother hen here. Quacking away as usual.

These shots are fascinating. I don't think I've ever seen wasps like that. (Of course, how would I know, what with me running in the other direction and screaming and all...?)

LV said...

We have wasps that are similar, but these are very different. Apparently like fences.

Marie said...

Wow! I wonder what is attracting them to that metal fence! Fun photos!

Rose said...

Chin-ups!!! These are some of the most amazing shots ever. I have never seen anything like this. It just makes me smile from ear to ear. Why, I don't know.
