I have no idea what kind of wasp this is.

Yikes, scarier even in person, so to speak. Excellent detail in this great closeup, Sheila.

WOW. Now that's what I call a Wasp.
you can keep these big'uns on your side of the world
Nice dramatic light and comp, Sheila. Those wasps are absolutely huge; I hope they aren't a menace. Yikes.
3 inches! That's bigger than our wood wasp, which is scary enough.
WOW, three inches long, that is a huge wasp. Nice shot.
Chances are it's come in from their side of the world...most of what we have here has been an import from somewhere else and illegal!!!
I'm with Phillip! Good thing you live on the other side of the world!!
Merry Christmas to you and yours Sheila! :)
