Hovering

Originally uploaded by Bob Owen

Sometimes you just have to make due with the glass you have on your camera when an opportunity strikes. While photographic violets, this wasp flew into the area. I tried to get a good autofocus, but I knew my lens wouldn’t be clear if I got any closer and the focus target was just too small. So I threw the lens into manual mode, grabbed the focus ring, and hoped for the best.

This tiny little guy appears to be a wasp in the Crabronidae family. I remember learning about these at Epcot. They’re good for controling the population of other insects such as aphids.
