Western Yellow Jacket (Wasp)

Western Yellow Jacket (Wasp)
Colorado Springs, CO - Certainly not a welcome guest in my home, but one that visits all too frequently, especially this time of year. I like them much better when they are tasting our mint flowers, as shown here, instead of our dinner. Thankfully, I had a pretty reasonable working distance for this shot even with the addition of an extension tube. Including the camera's crop factor, this bee ended rather large but I was not brave enough to go for a shot a MFD. It is shown here at only a small fraction of its full resolution and I will most likely try again soon to obtain much better close up shots of these amazing bees.
