Up close and personal

Up close and personal

Tamron 90 and 25 mm Canon extension tube. When I tried to get a close up of a wasp using this combination on my apple core they were so busy with their heads down eating it would not work. Today I found this drowsy one in the bathroom so I rescued it with my toothbrush mug and put it outside - not sure if it is spitting out water because of that..Lol! Honest - I did not try to drown it first!
