Accidental artistry

black and yellow wasp

I have been photographing insects for several years now and usually know, for better or for worse, how a shot will turn out. I still get surprises, of course, and most of them are deleted very quickly. This one was a surprise – the combination of lighting, lens and camera settings gave me an effect I didn’t expect – but I rather like it.

The subject is a common mud-dauber, Sceliphron laetum.
