Beauties with some Beasts

Just for the fun of it, there is a need for some imagination to see the flowers that I am flaunting today.


As I was deciding whether to focus on the yellow fungus or  pink periwinkle, Pichu went in between to make the decision for me.


Does this wasp look any less evil surrounded with soft colours of the flowers?


What do you see? Beauty or Sting?


The wasp doesn't look very friendly but it is definitely very hardworking, scraping wood endlessly to build a nest even under the hot sun.


This sweet looking Bougainvillea is from a nearby park.

  3. Oh well, there you go, flaunting your flowers and getting interrupted at every click of the camera. Dreadful for you.
    I'd rather be interrupted by a dog than a wasp, however. I was working in the yard the other day and a wasp kept following me around. It didn't bite, just went everywhere I did, and flew around my head. I had no desire to take its picture, however. You are much braver than I am.

  5. The first shot's perspective and crop are so interesting. I love it... and the shot of hornet from behind makes his/her wings look a-maze-ing! Awesome captures.

  7. Pichu is little but likes to be in the photo I see. Does he do this a lot? My dogs did that often and always at the wrong time.

  8. Well, the wasp still looks a little scary to me, but your extra close and really sharp photos are stunning. I've never seen so much detail on a wasp before. The pink flowers from the park are lovely.

  9. Love the photo with Pichu. Precious.

    Bougainvillea reminds me of Israel, because it doesn't grow here in New Jersey and I first learned of the flower in my friend's backyard in Hashmonaim, Israel.

  11. Beautiful shots, one! I discovered the joys of photographing my garden this year and bug shots are my favorties. I have a plant called mountain mint that only seems to attract wasps and bees. Most of them are not aggressive and don't mind having their picture taken, but I don't know if I could bring myself to get close enough to use the macro on them!

  15. Pichu knows when and how to steal a scene. I like your "behind the scene" photo of the wasp.

  16. Love the first picture with Pichu's furry paws in the middle. How cute! Every one of your photos are gorgeous, even the ones with the nasty wasp, excellent photography!

  17. You always have amazing insect photos. Since I am allergic to bee stings, I would avoid the wasp. And I have to laugh at Pichu because our dog seems to always wander through most shots. Thank goodness for digital and do-overs.

  24. I like your first shot the most. I would not ordinarily think capturing your dog's legs would add to the photo, but I think, in this case, it does.

  25. Lovely shots. Beauty all the way.
