    Default Slender monster feasting on the bloom

    ID: Thread waisted sand wasp

    The bushkiller(Probably: Cayratia Japonica), is one of the best nectaring plant that butterflies and all winged insects love to feast upon during the initial days of monsoon. These also turn out to be a boon for naturalists like us to document the complete ecosystem, with its, varied, visitors and the beautifully camouflaged predators (not seen in this particular instance). This particular beast seemed to be one of the odd ball visitors that had decided to show up to the nectar party, which was, until then, being enjoyed by the sweat bees, flies and sand loving wasps.

    Good details in the eye and the body. The white flowers add to the composition. It helps to know which plants attract these beauties . Lovely capture. Thanks for sharing.

    The shape of the flowers and buds have come out well. Waiting near flowering plants can often result in pleasant sightings. Thanks for sharing.

    Cheers,
