This insect was moving very quickly through the vegetation so it was difficult to get a good photo
Thanks for the ident Keith. So would this be a female? The female is wingless. Having just read in Wiki - "The male locates a female on the wing and mates. The female then enters an insect nest, typically a ground-nesting bee such as a bumblebee or wasp nest, and deposits one egg near each larva or pupa." ........ There was another insect of a similar colour flying around, as this one was going through the undergrowth
Nice spot Viv!
Velvet Ant. Velvet Ants are very quick movers. These are great photos.
