And not too far from the squirrel of the previous post, was this graceful creature, that finally alighted to take a closer peek at the coconut flesh, among the flowery bits.

Wasps are gorgeous!

This is a fine shot, Ayush.

That is a marvelous shot.

exceptional macro
Ayush Basu: Very generous of you to say that, Sherri.
Jolie guêpe en plein festin.
Ayush Basu: These coconut bits come from the offerings at a nearby Hindu temple, Martine.
Great macro, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I was pleased with this close up, Frank.
Wasps are quite graceful, aren't they! Great shot - nice and sharp!
Ayush Basu: That is usually a problem I face when I shoot up close - I can see only on the monitor later whether I got it sharp or not, Elizabeth.

You can see where the expression "wasp waist" comes from, Ayush. This is a very good macro - was it as big as it looks?
Ayush Basu: It was about the size of my thumbnail, Lisl.

A fine wasp image Ayush, he's hungry..
Ayush Basu: It was good for me, Chris, he stayed more or less still.
I can almost count all its hairs, Ayush! HA!
Ayush Basu: Yes, Ginnie. I could see that only after I put up the image on the monitor.

I think if you listened well, you can hear the wasp eat, Ayush. This is an outstanding picture.
Ayush Basu: You know what, I have been told that before, Astrid. Dank je wel!
And tomorrow I have a holiday for Ascension.

A huge feast for the wasp.
Ayush Basu: Quite so, Chad. I think these coconut bits come from offerings made at a nearby Hindu temple.
Magnifique ce Frelon qui semble être le Vespa Orientalis. Il est de toute beauté.
Bonne journée Ayush
Ayush Basu: I could not confirm the identification, Pascale. Thank you for the input!
i'm skeeeeered of wasps lol
Ayush Basu: Then I should have given you a heads-up, Elaine tongue
You have captured a hungry wasp.
Ayush Basu: I think these coconut bits come from offerings made at a nearby Hindu temple, Mary.
Very good shot Ayush, it seems to be made up of 3 distinct pieces.
Ayush Basu: Actually, Brian, it did remind me of the sketch of some insect with its parts outline from my school days. Thank you.

This macro is up there, with the better ones I have seen on SC.
Ayush Basu: Very generous of you to say so, Louis. I think you and Ray are the maestros in that arena.
That is a very fine insect picture Ayush
Ayush Basu: It was good that he had his attention on food and therefore not buzzing off, Bill.
Giant hornet?
Ayush Basu: Some kind of a wasp, I am told, LC.
A nice shot!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Claudio!
an excellent close-up Ayush... fine details....petersmile
Ayush Basu: I got lucky as this wasp was not buzzing around much, Peter.
