 Post subject: Wasp eye cleaning
PostPosted: Tue Sep 14, 2010 11:24 am 
The diagonal portrait of the previous wasp, was lucky this time to capture the process of them cleaning the eye, is in the photos below


f/9 | 1/125s | iso 100 | manual flash at about 1/4
Canon T1i with Canon MP-E 65mm @ 3x.

They usually clean the leg with the complex tongue, the leg have some brush hair I think they use to keep the eyes cleaned:

With the legs brush cleaned they use it to clean the eyes, note the curvature of the legs fits the eye anatomy (it's just obsevation not sure about the scientific base for this):

Just a last note is a photo at 1:1 to show the real scene were the wasp was placed in finger (for scale purposes)
