Electrifying blues!

Some electrifying blues here. This is the “Spider wasp (Auplopus sp.), sighted and photographed at the outskirts of Pollachi, Tamilnadu. It was mid July last year and I was macroing in my usual place. After about three and half hours, I was totally drained and so I decided to get back to home. I was walking towards my vehicle and suddenly I saw some blue shinning on the bark of a tree. As I went near, I saw this stunning wasp which didn’t bothered about me. So, again I took my camera out, mounted the flash and set up the diffuser, all for recording the beauty of this wasp here. I was not sure about what the Wasp is doing with the sap of the tree. But the wasp was there for a long time. 😊
