Thank you Louis, I'm happy that you like it.
I agree with RogerLittle. beautiful light and composition.

Thanks Louis for your appreciation.
Mark Plonsky: Excellent image. Definitely communicates the concept of territoriality and raises the hair on the back of my neck. Using a relatively long focal length was probably a good idea.
Thank you Mark, I'm happy that you like it.
Impressive shot... and using such a difficult lens too! Congratulations, Mark.
RuthC: Congratulations, Stefano, on achieving one of the top spots in this challenge. There were so many really great entries, and you should be very pleased with your result. What a fantastic capture, with the wasp guarding its nest. It looks really mean! Ruth :-)
Thank you RuthC for your kind comment. :-)
Wow, I was almost sure this was yours: definetly a well composed and "out of cliches" picture! It's a pity that so many voters didn't appreciate the tragic fun of this photo! Imho, this pic would have deserved one of the top spots.
brucewillis: Doisneau o Berengo Gardin?
Grazie per i complimenti, sei molto gentile.
