Dotun, the males have wings. I've seen the male and female mated together, with the male flying them both around. I've also seen this same wasp in my garden: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/264... , and another wingless "Blue bottle" female out by our laundry line: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/173....
Never heard such thing as a wingless wasp before. Interesting!
Thanks KD, this was a new one for me.
Very nice & interesting find.
Lovely creature, looks like an ant, hope you get an ID on that cutie, MacChristiansen.
What an amazing wasp with those colors and pattern!
Love the second photo... That is a cool looking insect. How do you get such an amazingly clear, crisp photo with so much detail, I would like to know!
Cool Mac. I think some Tiphiidae (Flower wasp) wingless probably the female.
wow, that is a cool ant!
