"Wingless Wasp"

By dales
Spotted this small insect on walk around the lake and have since found ( via my brother-in-law ) it is a wingless wasp belonging to a group known a velvet ants but are not ants Smile

Astounding macro of this unusual wasp.
If you could make the b/g mono he'd stand out even better?

Unusual looking wasp, even though he hasn't wings, I'd have guessed it was an ant. Excellent detailed close-up, Ian 😃👍
