I have to correct my previous comment. I had totally forgotten that I'd previously posted photos of this wasp from a sighting in 2016.

Thanks Neil. I have seen these a few times before, but this is the first time one was kind enough to sit still (mostly) for a photo or two :-)

Nice one, James. I remember seeing something similar to this in Sydney but didn't know what it was. This definitely looks familiar, so nice to be able to put a name to the face :)
