  1. 9 out of 10 people would identify that as a wasp.

    1. You are probably right Mal. Just as many people think the orange wriggly centipedes are wireworms. I also had a neighbour who thought that honeybees were wasps. They thought all bees should look like bumble bees. Sadly maligned creatures often suffer the consequences of mistaken identity.

  2. Lovely crisp photos, Sue. I've seen a lot of hoverflies around this summer (always welcome!) and even a new insect that looked like large aggressive hoverfly; on looking it up, I think it may have been a Bee Wolf or Asian Hornet. Definitely not welcome in my garden as they kill honey bees. :(
