You could still get a closer picture without getting stung. Your title and description is fraud.

I'm not trying to be a party pooper or anything but, this pic is a lot closer and they still didn't get stung. http://i.imgur.com/TEv34Ru.jpg

Both, I do see stingers of things that would do more damage in my "reptile house" and Rollo's theory.

There is way more impressive macro shots of other inverts as well. Look at a macro of a parabuthus transvaalicus stinger. That shit's intense.

Shit, look at a close-up of a stingray barb, too. Takes years for a wound to heal if you get nailed.

Steve Irwin took a close up of a stingray barb. No thanks.

His family is still waiting for the life insurance.

The insurance company won't pay because he was killed by a fish and not a crocodile.

They're calling it an act of cod.

Funny thing is, the little ones I swim with in Mexico love people. I think they're just used to being around human beings in the touristy areas and parks.

@sev, sub it and I'll have a look at it
3 years ago
and obviously the title was a joke. The thing is, and I'm splitting hairs, in my pic, you can recognize it as a wasp but in yours you can't.
3 years ago
Not saying I have taken macro shots but I do have worse critters( already subbed some) and I have been skin on stinger/fang contact, which is closer than a pic can get.

I think that pretty much proves my point.

why are they barbed? Aren't they supposed to be able to get the stinger out?
3 years ago
Does more damage that way, MD.

Shut up and accept my knowledge.

It's not like I took the first microscopic stinger pic I could find and added text with a meme site and posted it here just to try to argue. I am a professional.

You are not an entomologist, Rollo.

He is an enragedologist.

I am THE enragedologist.

He's right though. My pic is prob a bee. Wasp would have smoother, removable stinger. I am the fraud:(
3 years ago
so you're saying wasps want to hurt stuff? Sounds like a conspiracy to me.
3 years ago
Aren't wasps more aggressive than a typical honeybee?
3 years ago
Bees=first sting is last sting Wasps=sting and sting again. Isn't that how it works?
3 years ago
I think so.
3 years ago
apparently but I've never been stung by either. Wasps will approach with less fear though.

When I was about ten years old I got stung by a wasp on the top of my left foot. Felt like I got stabbed.

I've been stung by so many bees and wasps.

Bumblebees pack a good sting.

is it really that bad? Shit. I need to find out man.

The pain isn't what you should worry about. It's your reaction to their venom that's important.

I used to get kicks from wandering around fields with a jar and trapping various stinging insects. I fucked up one time and thought I had this bigass bumblebee in the jar. I didn't. I had the jar in my left hand and then looked at my right hand. There was the bigass bumblebee crawling in circles around my middle fingertip. My first reaction was to blow it off of my fingertip as if I was blowing out an 80 year old's birthday cake. I didn't want to let go of the jar of other bees/wasps that I had in my other hand. Then it stung me. It was as if someone/something had stuck a sewing needle completely through my finger.

Wasps are the assholes of the flying insect world. They serve no purpose but to fuck shit up.

They sting even when unprovoked and sting how ever many times they feel necessary.

I came out from the deep end swimming when I was little and at the surface awaited a wasp that felt it was right to lay it's stinger in my face. Felt like somebody punched me with a hot needle.

I got stung by a wasp last summer, hurt like a bitch and that's how I found out I was allergic to wasps. My hand blew up like a balloon and next time could be anaphylactic :/ hello epipen.

That's hot.
(Somebody was gonna say it)

swelling isnt sexy
3 years ago
In my penis it is.
3 years ago
An epipen actually saved me when I had a reaction to penicillin. Still wasn't fun. Allergies suck.
3 years ago
It was awful, not only was the sting one of the worst pains ever, the swelling didn't go away for about a week
