I was really pleased to finally see one of these wasps actually chilling on a plant, at a height I could photograph it and at a reasonable distance. While these aren’t the best shots in the world, I was still happy with the resolution and detail of the wasp – which is about 5″ or so in length.
Normally whenever I see these animals they are manic to say the least. Usually rapidly flitting about and scurrying around on the ground, which suggests to me they have an interest in spiders.
Hopefully I will be able to find another one of these insects in future to get some even closer and more detailed shots.
