Stinger by Peter Virag

Stacked macro shot of of a dead european wasp I found outside, drowned in a pool of water. How painful does that stinger look?!

“Wasp stings can be uncomfortable, but most people recover quickly and without complications. Wasps, like bees and hornets, are equipped with a stinger as a means of self-defense. A wasp's stinger contains venom (a poisonous substance) that's transmitted to humans during a sting. ... Wasp stingers remain intact.” (
