I took these pics with my Samsung S4 phone, and am pretty impressed.
It wasn't set to macro or anything special - simply auto... taken from a few cm away.
The wasp is building a few cells, and the detal of the wasp for a phone camera is pretty impressive.
If there are any entomologists out there, I wan't to move this - as I don't want wasps thinking ...[text shortened]... 0308220791&l=20077d6f0f
Edit: I believe it's a 'paper wasp'... but I'm not certain.
Great photo's. My wife's cell just died and I got the previous one for her, the S3, it seems to take good photos also, not sure of macro ones however.
I had those wasps in our house and had to do an extermination routine three times before they seemed to be gone for good.
I saw some kind of redneck tv show the other day where this guy's son was attacked by wasps and he found the main nest, which was outside in a dirt berm. He attacked the bunch with a flame thrower and that worked pretty well, not one escaped!
