Solitary wasp

Yet another fine April morning so a quick stroll round the garden to see what insects were basking in the warm spring sunshine and it wasn’t long before I came across a new species for the garden. This solitary wasp was sunning itself on a hawthorn leaf and looking quite colourful with his yellow abdomen and cinnamon legs and thorax, very much like a miniature hornet! I used a 105 macro lens handheld for the shot but I couldn’t quite get parallel onto him to get more DOF (in focus bits).No idea what species it is yet. Will try and ID him later :¬\
