Penally Photo: a fantastic Penally Photograph Featuring Ectemnius continuus (f)

Photograph Taken On Tuesday, May 21, 2019

This wasp with amazing eyes - some say they're wearing sunglasses - was checking out a cluster of burrows in the footpath between Penally and Tenby. I'm not sure whether she was hunting or looking for a home. There was a sandpit mining bee colony a couple of metres away, but I don't think the wasp's activities were related to this. Species ID is based on the abdominal patterns which are yellow spots rather than stripes. These are clearly visible in other shots with wings open but not such sharp focus.View image on Flickr
