Large Wasp

By Ajack
Snapped this one in our front garden last week,He was the odd one out among all the Wasps and Hoversflies which were feeding on the ivy flowers,
I was told that he is a Norwegian Wasp
Which is one of the nine specious which we get in the uk,I hope this is correct as thats what I have him down as, If any one knows otherwise could
they please let me know,I hope you like him and thank you for looking and
thank you for your comments,

I am generally not keen on wasps but this is an excellent macro photograph of one. The insect is sharp and the flower does not distract. Great work.
