This red wasp was just peering over the top of this leaf on a bush at me fully aware that I was taking pictures of it. Its wings were injured making it accessible for me to get so close to it.

I am allergic and I know that these wasps are generally mean but with its wings injured, he couldn't fly to get away from my camera lens. His head followed my movement when I moved around the bush for a different angle so I have no doubt that he knew I was there.

Paper wasps try to build a hive on my patio every year. Here I have some pictures of the queen building the hive; you can even see first egg! She was actually friendly and never tried to attack me.


The queen would stop building her hive and follow my camera! I was so looking forward to watching the hive progress, however it disappeared one day after some harsh winds.

Photo Description
This is more for a chuckle than anything. We are all so worried about the bees I wonder if it's not that they are becoming a bit gullible.


I was out on the deck the other day taking a photo and a bee flew up to and landed on some faux flowers from my hose decoration. He seemed busy and content enough to let me take a photo of him.

I don't know how long it took him to realize his pollination "efforts" were "fruitless" (sorry I just couldn't resist). But it sure made for a great photo!

Today I had to "Hurry and bring the camera, Mom! You gotta check out this bug and take pictures of it", said my 6 year old daughter.

This yellow jacket stayed on my porch for at least an hour one day. He was so friendly that I was able to get multiple shots of him.


I thought he looked really pretty when he buzzed over and landed on one of my husband's young viola blossoms.

I was very surprised one day when a rather non-aggressive wasp landed on the viola plant that my husband has growing on our front porch. These wasps have been nesting in one side of our home.

And I really thought I was the only person who finds beauty in a simple wasp! Thanks for sharing your picture with us. (04/30/2010)

Wasps get in on our enclosed patio and I have a "Bug Buster" that I use to suck them up and then I let them go outside. We also get the big black and yellow "furry" bumblebees in our yard and I love to watch them buzzing in and out of the flowers. They especially like my rhododendron bush. (05/02/2010)
