EDIT: As it appears, this is not a Cuckoo wasp, but a Chalicoid wasp....

Thanks! I had a 50mm mounted on a 90 mm macro lens. Reversed.

I understand your feeling on the color, and probably not much you can do. However a crop to get rid of some of the extraneous background would help diminish it somewhat.

Thank you both!
Yes, I could have cropped it, and I think there is space enough both 'real' space as well as quality, but I liked the composition this way.
When my computer is back I will try a crop though! Thanks....

Very nice, the complementary colours of the background help boost the subject.
