User's notes

Extremely hard to see when landed I was lucky to get any kind of shot at all. A very pretty wasp though with orange head, black middle with white spots, and black and white striped abdomen.

thank you michael. if i get a moment i might do a more zoomed in pic so you can see it more clearly.

Thanks - but key features like wing venation are unlikely to be clear in a zoomed in vision so I doubt I will be able to be more definitive re ID
