What I thought was a ruby tailed wasp appears to have only a small area of ruby colour on it's abdomen, the rest is made up of an iridescent blue/green.
No interactions present.
Unfortunately, I can not seem to get much of an enlargement of the apex of the abdomen. I'd like to see that before confirming that this is in the genus Chrysis. I suspect it IS, but I just want to make sure!
I've tried to get a clearer photo of the abdomen, without success I'm afraid. Just left
with unreadable pixels. I have only seen one of these before and it conformed in having a
totally ruby abdomen. I just did not know what else it could be.
Many thanks, Didi.
