I don't like wasp of any kind. Neat close up pic.

He is one ugly wasp... Glad you didn't get stung. That would have hurt.

Thank you for all your kind comments. I don't think I say that often enough to you, friend.

Gasp! My worse fear is red wasps. I would have thrown the camera and ran screaming and swinging my arms and then Hillbilly would have scolded me for scaring him by screaming. Then I would be mad at him for scolding me. As you can tell, this is a common occurrence at my house. There isn't a zoom lens big enough for me to catch a shot of one of those. I'll shut up now (just a little traumatized. hehe.

I too would have dropped the camera and run!!

He's a little freaky looking. We don't have those here, only the yellow ones. I am always fascinated by their nests though!

I've had my share of their stings, and I prefer to kill them all, mean, nasty little things.

A red wasp is quite lovely, I don't believe we have them here. Wouldn't mean I would stick around very long watching, though.
