Thank you, David. They’re a European species. I’ve sometimes thought Emerald Wasp would be more appropriate as the ruby tail is hidden by the wings. Ah, thank you, David They’re not common in the UK. I think I may have seen two in total, the one I photographed and one other. I shall be keeping a lookout from now on.🙂 They’re not very big, 10 to 12mm (3/8 to 1/2 an inch) but the bright colours help spotting them. Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
