    Two red paper wasps building a nest

    New home construction is everywhere! These two paper wasps are building a small nest on the top door jamb of our front door. I used the D850 and my 55mm f/2.8 AIS Micro Nikkor focused to 1:2 and added some fill flash with a ring flash. I taped a piece of white copy paper on the door and closed it so there was a plain white background. Even though my face was little more than 9" away from them, they both acted as though I was not even there, even with several (what must have been for them) blinding flashes.

    Yes. My fiancÚ wants me to remove it but I have not so far. Red Paper Wasps are very docile, unlike hornets or yellow jackets, and they are fun to watch!
