Challenge has finished
OK people. The countdown to DPreview's year end best of the winner challenge is on. Last year, DPreview only chose winners from challenges with high amounts of entries. (My own No.1 was ignored, even though it got close to 3.9 stars, mainly because there's only a small number of entries in that challenge) So here's the thing.... Let's help each other to get one of us in. Theme is Nature Photography'. Limit per person.... 30 Number of entries... 799

I was hesitant to macrophotograph this Paper Wasp a while ago because it's guarding its nest, but nevertheless I tried to give it a shot. This particular wasp is surprisingly docile; I even tried to move the leaf where the wasp's nest was attached to in order for me to capture this 4:1 portrait, haha.
