Wasp02, Botanic Garden, Singapore.

The is the most common wasp I found among the flowers and leafs. However, I did once saw a group of them busy gathering tree bark granule. I guess it was for their nest some where. I wonder what he eats. I was searching around dead flowers and leaves when I shot him. He had a narrow abdomen that enlarged and then tapered in a pink sharp point. Somehow they look so sexy and attractive. It has an amazing waist and bottom, a delight to watch.
