These wasps are really very much more inclined toward threat displays than physical defense. But if sufficiently aroused, they can manage that too.

WOW Shocked that thing does look nasty. Again with the beautiful detail and sharpness Rik. Lots to see and think about.

Thanks, Doug!

This is an old topic, but I see I forgot to post a link to a follow-up shot at higher magnification.

Let me fix that now... The higher mag shot is here.

Hope you enjoy! Very Happy
