Polka dotted wasp moth, nemesis of the Oleander tree. However, a lovely creature.
What a nice looking insect. I wonder if he knows your are photographing him?
Amazing shot! I’ve never seen anything like this in the UK!!
Thanks Anna B! It is a curious lil’ bug!
I just saw one of these wasps and now I know what it is. Nicely photographed on the pretty lantana.
Thanks, and happy to help! Watch out for these lil’ guys, they will lay eggs and the resulting caterpillars can decimate certain plants.
