Nice colors in this image.
Good work!

 
Thanks
for the kind comment :)

With that long narrow waist (petiole)
it looks like it might be Mischocyttarus flavitarsis. See Eric will know, but he usually doesn't comment on weekends. We'll have to wait till Monday to find out for sure.

 
Thanks
It definitely looks like the same one.
