Robiro: Please share with us how you made this shot.

Thank you so much! Those are paper wasps and they live under my roof. I have frequent contact with them. Check my macro album, there are many wasp shots in it.
I even held one of them on my finger!

And this is the best head shot I got (but yours is much better):

I only use ordinary flash. Will have to invest in better lighting equipment!
Again, thanks a lot for sharing your know-how!

On Beautiful Eyes challenge (23 comments in total)

I would like to complain about the administrator of this challenge. I posted a cat eye picture which fully complied with the challenge rules: "Send the photoes of Beautiful eyes. Only Eyes, Not full face.The face should not be able to identify.Macros of single Eye is Ok. B&w or Colour."

This macro cat eye picture was groundlessly disqualified! On the other hand, pictures showing identifiable FULL FACES were LEFT in the challenge, although they go clearly AGAINST the challenge rules.

I hereby launch a complaint against how this challenge is being run! The specifications do NOT say posting animal eyes is prohibited!

Link to my disqualified picture: http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3206318811/photos/2808813/murkove-oko-mr

Or, if you disqualify anybody, please next time provide the reason for disqualification. "Your entry 'Cat's f22 equivalent' has been disqualified from the challenge called 'Beautiful Eyes' for the following reason: -- no reason provided by host --"

Would have been a five star shot had you not cropped that wheel! But still, quite beautiful!
