16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Crash landing

I collected this beautiful adult wasp on a cold winter's night while he was in a dormant state, upon the heat of my light, he warmed, tried to fly and crash landed on this perfume bottle. I released him back into the night.
