[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Scoliid wasp,
Campsomeris sp. Scoliidae family.
Thanks Christodoulos, for the Id.

I have no idea about the Id of this insect which I found in my backyard, last week. It was early morning and this one resting on this dried flower about 1 inch in length.
The lighting under the tree was poor and wind too made bit difficult to focus properly.
Hope somebody can ID this beautiful insect.

Hell Nagraj,
A macro in excellent sharpness, details and taken from a good POV. Beautiful natural colours against a fine blurred background.

Hello Nagaraj,
Your Backyard seems a real treasure trove!
Must be great to see such a wasp appear for you to take such a good shot of it, up to your usual high standards in low lighting. Great colours, composition , sharpness and BG.
Thanks and have a great WE!
