Lego Man!

Solitary wasp - Cerceris rybyensis by Lamia textor
Going through a few old pictures on  my Flickr site. This one always reminds me of a little lego man.  It's actually the solitary wasp Cerceris rybyensis.     This chap at Wollaton Park Notts and another colony I discovered at Holme Pierrepont in 2011 represent first records for the county. If you want to see them in Nottinghamshire the best place is wollaton park, you should see them on the hard path around the haha behind the hall.  August appears the best month for these fine wasps.
