    Thanks Alf for pointing me in the right direction. I did think a bee or wasp, I also think on the 2nd shot the banding from the hairs is a bit deceiving as it makes it look two colours, when most of the body is black.

    Closest match I could find was the Blue Mason Bee, I did see several all investigating the holes in this dead tree.

    EDIT: It looks like it could be ormyrus nitidulus a type of chalcid wasp

    I've had a look of various spider sites but can't seem to find one like this. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Could anyone help me with an ID for this dragonfly please? I think it is a female Migrant Hawker with blue markings...

    Thank you in advance :)
