The beauty of this flower and of this wasp compliment each other so well. I was very happy to be able to capture this shot. The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, EF70-200mm f/4L IS lens + 1.4x tele-extender, 1/250 sec at f/5.6, ISO 200 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.

    1. We were in the Land Rover on our safari and had stopped to look at some elephants in the distance. I looked down at the side of the dirt road we were on and noticed this interesting wasp on the Hibiscus flower, and took the shot.
