Ruby-tailed Wasp

Wildlife spot today, 12th July 2013 in the Ice House Coppice at Compton Verney – a superb image of a Ruby-tailed wasp. Snapped by local wildlife photographer Ed Phillips on specialist macro equipment, he is especially pleased with the result as they are often difficult to photograph due to their active lifestyle!

Take a look at another image from Ed, this time a Six Spot Burnet Moth  and do drop by the Compton Verney Grounds Blog again as we hope to add more images as time goes by.
