Waterlily and the Insect
I love capturing pictures of flowers. While on holidays with the kids a few weeks back I spotted this insect buzzing within a waterlily and tried to capture it in action.
It didn’t really look like a bee so I wasn’t sure what it was. Anyone had any idea what insect it was? Do you think it is a wasp?
The insect wasn’t buzzing and wasn’t too bothered that I was hovering over it with my camera. It did fly too and fro from the flower and I managed to catch it in action.
It is interesting how plants in nature are able to provide substance for other living creatures in our world.
This butterfly was harder to snap as it was more sensitive to movements and flew off before I could get a few more photographs of it. I’m lucky that the above shot turned out clear as I just snapped away without having sufficient time to focus on the insect.
What have you been photographing lately?

Beautiful flower. I think the insect was some type of wasp. I am glad you didn’t get stung. Happy New Year.

Definitely one of the many wasp species – most of which are quite harmless… delightful florals for the close of the year on WW Dominique. I live visiting your page each week and wish and your family the very best for 2015… Blessings, YAM xx

Beautiful shots! Butterflies are so hard to shoot, it’s like they are camera shy or something.
