       When the devil meets me at the crossroads, I want this guy at my side.

       A kick-ass Detroit yellow jacket wasp waits for you.

    Independent. Watchful. Opportunistic. Carnivorous.

    You definitely want this guy on your side. You do not want him on the other side. But will he take any side at all? Watch your back.

    Perhaps a fallen angel, Pete.

    What a great shot! Such a cool face they have.

  • Rick said:

    Thanks Moe. All hymenopterons have really cool faces.

    The expression on the wasp is very interesting!

  • Rick said:

    Thanks Mingfei. Yellow jacket’s have great coloring, which really helps us want to read a personality into their face.

    This shot literally gave me chills . . . having been stung quite often by these particular bandits

    You captured the aggressive grin that these bad boys display so often . . . yeow! . . . made me back away from my screen!

    Thanks Diane. I like yellow jackets, beautiful markings.
