day lily and the wasp

I had put my FE 50mm macro lens on for the day lily shot.

When I checked the photo, I saw the tiny wasp on the top flower.

I know that wasps do not stay in the same spot long enough for me to go in the house and change lenses.  They are not there when I get back.  That is why all of these shots are done with the 50 mm lens.  A 1:1 magnification is not really enough,

This one is not cropped.

The rest of the shots I have cropped.

It's a girl.  The ovipositor can be seen in this shot.

You can see the legs are a red/orange.

I was very happy when it flew over and landed on a petal.
