Technical Details

Balan, wonderful lighting and details. I could see this as a vertical image. or at least some cropped off from the right side and maybe a tiny bit off the top to remove that little tiny bit of cactus that is on the right side of the perch that seems cut off. I really like how you managed the light, captured such details, and that pose he gave you. Great job!

Fantastic detail, Balan. I do agree with @Shirley_Freeman about cropping a bit. Very nicely done.

Very nice, Balan. I like how you have the end of the item the wasp is hanging on.

super detail and I really like the tucked in pose - antennae included! Lovely colors and modeling with the light source. I watched a few videos about flash and nature photography so more will be in my future and I hope to get some nice results like this. I agree that cropping slightly might bring better focus to this gorgeous wasp. Lately I’ve been favoring 4:5 ratio and would play with that, especially to just cut out the dark bump at the top of its perch. Quite lovely.
