Topic: Kiron 105: Potter Wasp on Leek Flowers

In July I was photographing another black and yellow wasp when this one landed. I believe it may be an Ancistrocerus but have not found enough images for comparison.

I only got the one shot. It has picked up some pollen which looks like that of a hollyhock.

There are also two thrips in the scene.

Thanks, Peter.

One is just below the tip of the antenna. The other is just below the tip of the abdomen, at the base of a stamen.
