Cuckoo Wasp?

I spotted this beautifully colored little flying insect.....
The closest thing I could find is a Cuckoo Wasp.....Am I right?
It was trying to get inside of these little wind chimes, but I think Mud Dabbers might have gotten there first.


  1. It's gorgeous! Well, maybe not in form, but the color--wow! I looked it up at bugguide.net. It's from the cuckoo wasp family, but this link will give you the species name. I learned something new today. I didn't even know there was such a thing as a cuckoo wasp. Great capture!


Thanks so much for stopping by. I appreciate the time you take to make a comment......If you ask a question, I will try to answer it here.
