I was out looking at the bees that are covering the shrubs in front of the studio and spotted this guy. He seems a bit out of place.

    He's a right scarey alien! Doesn't quite fit in. Me and wasps don't mix too well.

    Think he could be a Braconid Wasp.

    The soft colours and contrast take some of the sting out of this nasty little guy's appearance

    dangerous when it stings!!! The poison is picric acid and very painful when it touches with blood!!!

    Incredible detail, Regenia. As James says, your capture of him does present a softer side of him. "Pretty Ugly?" :)
