Nice capture, not easy getting a insect in flight in focus. Good job doing this with a bridge camera. The framing is a little awkward, I think you need the whole wasp body in the frame, otherwise you can be more selective with what you include to make the crop look more on purpose. Colours are good, sharpness is pretty good too. Good job šŸ‘

Not bad photo. But personally I would prefer to see the whole subject in the frame. Also there are some out of focus spots in the photo.

That's already been said by Chavezshutter Chavezshutter above..

I know what you saying. I'm not really into insects shooting, but more static objects, like jewelleries. You probably can achieve more details by using a diffuser. But yes, if the insect was flying, it's really hard to get that.

I see you have almost done the almost impossible. Nice work. Shame its not the whole wasp but hey when you can grab an image you grab it. I have tried this and it is very hard. Maybe if I keep trying I will nail that shot I am after.
