Insects are not a favourite of mine, though I appreciate their benefits. And wasps are definitely not a favourite, but then you get a close up look at this little beauty, which does not sting! They can be found in the UK and Ireland, Europe to Russia and on to China and Japan. As is evident in this stamp, the wasp has metallic, iridescent colouration and big, bulging compound eyes.
a rather pretty insect for Sunday Stamps
