    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 my home is home... the cells are on my front window sill, outside. Advice on how to move it, where to move it, and not damage it would be appreciated.

    Edit: I believe it's a 'paper wasp'... but I'm not certain.

    Amazing quality to phone cameras nowadays...and you can immediately send them to Facebook or wherever.
    Nice pics!

    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!

    Lol... don't want to take a flame thrower to the house...

    I didn't remove anything yet, and now the little blighter is finishing her third cell.


    I'm going to have to destroy them I think.
