I was out the back garden on my way to take a pic of the white frangipani when this big buzzing thing flew passed me I froze as I had a bad encounter with a wasps nest when I lived in Townsville.

I am sure I heard it say dont be frightened I only came for a drink is that Ok with you, I told the wasp to help itself as it settled on one of the water lily pads while drinking its fill I asked for a photo or two, go for it said the wasp but be quick as I cant stay long..

I managed to get three shots before it flew off, it was a big wasp gasp about 5cms/2inches with the largest body I have ever seen I finally ID it as the *Large-Potter-Wasp - Abispa-ephippium*
