Wasp Plumehorn

I've been playing with the 35mm macro lens again today. My main image is of a hoverfly wasp mimic, Volucella inanis. This is a male as his eyes meet in the middle. The females lay their eggs in wasp and hornet nests. It gets the name plumehorn from its plumose aristae or feathery antennal bristles which can be seen in my image.

I used the 35mm for the willow emerald damselfly image in extras.

One day late for International Tiger Day, I shot a Jersey tiger moth in a blackthorn bush.
