Ruby-tailed wasp

By Paul_Iddon  
The beautiful ruby-tailed wasp has a striking appearance. As the common name suggests, it has a brilliant ruby-coloured abdomen and the thorax is iridescent and brightly coloured. I'm fortunate to see this wonderful hymenoptera species every summer here in Preston.

I usually see them every year too, but unfortunately, there seems to be a lack of their hosts, the mason bees! You've caught this one brilliantly, amazing colours and details!
