Common wasp in the flight: an example of aposematic coloration

In common and other wasps, wings beat too fast (about 140 beats per second) in order to see any details in their coloration. Therefore, wings are transparent or semi-transparent. Aposematic colors (black & yellow) are mainly shifted to the relatively immobile head, thorax and segmented belly.
