Never knew that wasp get covered all over with flower semens like that. Took the picture by chance. Strolled through Basel on a wonderful first of october, when I saw it arriving and settling on the flower. Grabbed the cam and started shooting away, following the wasp from flower to flower (it got quite annoyed .-)
