WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHY – ENCHANTED FOREST PARK, FL
This photograph of a wasp was taken at Enchanted Forest Park in North Miami, FL. Subject was shot with a Nikon D90 attached to a Nikkor 60mm lens. Enchanted Forest Park is a wonderful place to enjoy and view birds, flowers, and to peacefully walk or bike the trails it provides. What makes this park so wonderful is that it is located smack in the middle of a large city, yet lets you feel like you are in the woods!
22 Thoughts to “Wasp on Flower at Enchanted Forest Park”
I’m very impressed with your photos.
If anyone knows what kind of wasp this is, please leave a comment and inform me.
Great site. A lot of useful information here. I’m sending it to some friends!
Great sharpness. Love the use of maps to pinpoint the area.
That is a really close up pic. I’ll still keep my distance.. lol
The wasp was more interested in the flower than of me!
Used the Nikkor 60mm on that shot. The jury is still out on the maps
It looks a lot like a Red Paper wasp, but the eyes seem wrong… could be a variant.
Hi Don, I really don’t know what kind it is, but it wasn’t easy to photograph! Every time I got close, it buzzed me and then settled down. This was more of a “point n shoot” photo! lol
It does look like a red paper wasp. I found a good representation at http://www.greensmiths.com/paper.htm See the picture of the wasp on finger, close up.
I also found info at http://www.adkinsbeeremoval.com/bee-id-chart/paper-wasp2.html
Your photo is spectacular, wonderful intense color and clarity. something for me to aspire to.

pls. check it out. Hope it helps…
It’s an Yellow Mud Dauber. Mud daubers are long, slender wasps; the latter two species above have thread-like waists. The name of this wasp group comes from the nests that are made by the females, which consist of mud molded into place by the wasp’s mandibles.

Cool very cool. I think I saw these in North GA when I lived there.
I’m sure you did! They are in much of the US.
