Wasp Waist!

Couldn’t help myself could I?  Should be packing….went outside to get something from the washing line and spotted this big native wasp intent on feeding on an Allium flower.  I think it is a Potter’s Wasp, a large solitary wasp that builds a mud nest, installs a caterpillar or spider in each cell for the lavae to feed on when the egg hatches.  I didn’t get too close, even though I believe they do not sting…..anyway here are some shots of this luridly coloured wasp.  Now I really am off to pack……
