Hey buurman,
Prachtig scherpe macro van dit insect. Elk detail is zichtbaar. Mooie natuurlijke kleuren ook en vanuit een erg goed standpunt genomen, en profile, zoals dat heet. Sorry ik kan je niet helpen met de identificatie, heb meer verstand van vogeltjes.

Hello Laurens,
A splendid view of this most unusual Wasp all in grey! (I'm almost tempted to think it's a joke!!) Perhaps someone will solve the mystery! Anyway, a great capture from a nice POV showing sharp details against a fine background.
TFS and best wishes, Ulla
