a Man Will Never…"

A good combinations of colors and an interesting background for this subject matter. Nicely done!
vz-nostalgia: "...an interesting background for this subject matter." Wow. I'd never describe a newspaper in such an eloquent way, Martin. smile
I'm impressed both by the quality of this picture and the fact that you had a camera to hand whilst reading your morning paper.smile
vz-nostalgia: I can assure you these are not the only ways I can make an impression on people, Bill. smile

A funny rhymed poem, a nice original motif, and the "fearles", well armed "wasp" is here the "Photo-King"! Please don't expect that I'll continue your/the newspaper- sentence, I don't like to pick a quarrel early in the morning, my female weapons I have put down, the man should put down his arms too, for the wasp is an innocent, peaceful creature never disturbing or aggressive if never provoced or attacked by...
vz-nostalgia: Yep. We have plenty of wasps in our garden, Ms. Philine, and I can testify that people and wasps can coexist in a perpetual peace. smile

"Judging by physiognomy, we can easily guarantee that a man will never produce an immortal work; but not that he will never commit a great crime."

Arthur Schopenhauer
vz-nostalgia: Reading Schopenhauer's message brought by a wasp early in the morning gives me a headache, Mike. smile But thanks for the contribution to my vocabulary, the word "physiognomy" is a new one for me. smile

Richly evocative image, Maestro.

Your wasp, it seems, reads with its bum....can the paper be open at the "politics" pages?
vz-nostalgia: Hahaha. You guessed it, Ray. Most people start their newspaper with sport pages. I start with politics.

Great Macro. What eyes! Sorry I can't trot out a bit of appropriate Schopenhauer this afternoon!
vz-nostalgia: Well, if not Schopenhauer, perhaps something from Ortega Y Gasset? Some men will never... belong to an intellectual elite, for example. smile

A good macro, but is it real?
vz-nostalgia: As real as my typing to you right this minute, Nig.
I'm afraid your real name is Doubting Thomas from Glos. smile

......pick up the sports-paper and hit this wasp over the head with it...before taken this excellent picture.... Viktor I love this macro., love the colors...did you share your coffee with him???
vz-nostalgia: I can't hit it over the head, for it's a God's creature, Ms. Astrid. I did not create it and it is not for me to kill it.
No coffee for them, but we do share the sweets, when we have lunch or dinner on the back porch. smile

Very crisp, he almost looks plastic! Very nice shot
vz-nostalgia: No plastics are accepted, Ms. Kelly. The guy is as real as you and me. smile

What an unusual colour for a wasp, ours are bright yellow and black. Love the detail
vz-nostalgia: We do have the bright yellow and black variety as well, Ms. Ellie. We call them Yellow Jackets. Those are ferocious fighters. No wonder GA Tech football team (American football) call themselves Yellow Jackets. smile

Blackdog, I knew that Arthur Schopenhauer has been a misanthrop, probably caused by bad experience; he is notorious for his very hostile words about women and I have to say a man (like him) will never understand them! http://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Of_Women

Great macro shot, the wasp is fantastic and you have also captured "Moire" in the bottom of the picture in the printing. Really good shot. :o) John
vz-nostalgia: Ha. I haven't thought that moire would contribute to the overall quality of the picture. I'm glad it did, John. smile
fly,
if he can't dream.
vz-nostalgia: ...or sail.
i love this photo, it looks so real i got scared smile)

love your macro shots
vz-nostalgia: If you like macro, Ms. Mariam, buy yourself a macro lens. You'll discover a whole new world. smile
