Resin Bubbles on Golden Hunting Wasp Stinger, 10x Objective
(Cryptocheilus australis, Set in resin)
Sometimes microscopes reveal surreal scenes. Golden Hunting Wasps use their stinger to paralyze spiders. They then drag the spiders to their nests, where they’ll plant an egg on its side. When the maggots hatch, they feast on the spider - which is usually still alive! Feel sorry for spiders yet?
This panoramic image consists of 70+ "slices" captured with an OMAX microscope, focus-stacked and stitched together.
Printed on a premium 255gsm Metallic Gilcee paper.
Panorama, 6x21" (15x55cm)
Frames of this size are readily available at the Warehouse (NZ). Contact me to discuss more panoramic size options.

Printing & Shipping
My microphotographs are printed and shipped from carefully selected art-print shops in NZ and around the world (for international customers).
Please be sure to select the correct size option for shipping at checkout - this should correspond to the largest size in your cart.
Posters are usually produced by a different print shop. If ordering both prints and posters, please select the shipping option for the largest print in your cart. Please be aware that these items may arrive at different times.
International customers: Please note that I aim to find the best equivalent to the paper I print on here in NZ. Brand and paper weight (gsm) may vary depending on your local print-shop's inventory. I will be in touch if there is a significant difference.
