Blue and red wasp - Cryptus
Palms, Los Angeles , Los Angeles County, California, USA
July 15, 2019
This wasp was under a swing in our backyard. She was moving around in short, quick movements and “flicking” her blue iridescent wings to flash color. The wings, as I’ve said, were iridescent blue and the abdomen was a bright red/orange color with the ovipositor clearly visible.
