My phobia, i am so afraid of them, and then i enlarged it and it almost jumped out at me, but then that's a compliment to your photograph
Kind regards Maria

I don't like wasps

NIce shot but don't they sting at the rear end ??

The bit at the front appears to be a leg

Thanks everyone for your kind comments, just wish I could have captured it on a better background.

No Giulio it's not a killer bee

Thanks Stuey and gabor, I've used the healing brush to remove the distracting background and uploaded it to PPG, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
