Metallic Black Blue Wasp around 20 cm in length. With a yellow cap on it's head
Noticed it crawling along my back verandah late this afternoon in the outer western suburbs of Sydney
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 :)
Lat: -33.78, Long: 150.78
