Sleeping Cuckoo Wasp

Holopyga generosa (I presume)

Size: 7mm

 

One morning (July 1st, 4.30am) I found at least ten of these beautiful wasps in their curled up sleeping positions. Most of them were partially hidden in the vegetation making them difficult to shoot but this one had chosen a relatively open spot.

 

58 natural light exposures stacked in Zerene Stacker.
