Yellow Oriental Paper Wasp

Polistes olivaceus


Almost the same brilliant golden colour of the mango it is feeding on, this wasp has wavy lines in dark maroon on its abdomen.


My rooftop terrace. Feeling on the bruised mangoes that fell off the tree because of the rains. Now, if the juices have fermented we may see demented crazy wasps!!!

Thank you, Ornithoptera...I usually go wrong on the species so did not venture beyond Genus. Thanks for the tip! Your knowledge is phenomenal (hat tip)
