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!http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3206318811/photos/2759683/yellow-jacket?inalbum=macrosAnd this is the best head shot I got (but yours is much better):http://www.dpreview.com/galleries/3206318811/photos/2781649/hlava-osika-francuzskeho-01-crop?inalbum=macrosI only use ordinary flash. Will have to invest in better lighting equipment!Again, thanks a lot for sharing your know-how!
Please share with us how you made this shot.
This one is probably going to win... :-)
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!

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!
