European Paper Wasp on a Sunflower Leaf (2012-09-10 14-36-11_01)

10 Sep 2012

Chicago, Illinois (Edgewater neighborhood)

Panasonic DMC-FZ50, Canon 250D (+4) multi-element close-up lens

The photo was taken in a patch of sunflowers located at Granville & Hermitage in Chicago, Illinois.

European Paper Wasp – Order Hymenoptera : Superfamily Vespoidea : Family Vespidae : Subfamily Polistinae : Polistes dominula

Editing was done using Luminar Flex 1.1. Using the Develop filter I adjusted the color temperature, increased the contrast and clarity, opened up the shadows and decreased the highlights, whites and blacks. Next I added the Accent AI filter and increased the vibrance and structure.
