Very small torymid wasp on the variegated laurel.
This one seems to have given
you some trouble, Paul!
Nice find Paul considering how small these things are. I found one a couple of years ago but couldn't get a good shot at it so well done.
It was awkward - stood on a small leaf at head height 32 feet inside the bush!
It was a tough reach to Andy...
Nice work Paul these little guys are always hard to shoot.
Lovely find Paul and they have such lovely colours too.
PS, was this in your Garden ?
Thank you Alf, I do agree.
Cheer Graham - the iridescence shows up only under the flash...
Yes, this (like the vast majority of my finds) was in the little back garden.
Great shots Paul I gave up on those tiny wasp
Awesome little critter
Thanks Icy - luckily it stayed still enough, for long enough...
Thought i'd compliment your female with a male,, i think anyway. Did't even realise what it was until i looked at the snaps and i left it uncropped to give an idea of size on this thistle.
Well I wasn't sure what mine was tbh - I'll take your word for it m8, lol.
Good find on these little ones!
I found some of these in our garden a couple of years ago - they are so tiny I struggled to get a picture of one - well done on yours @Paul Iddon
Thanks Lyndsey - they are just as difficult to find!
