Lots of them feeding on flowering currant. Anyone got an id? I think its a parasitoid that preys on the hairy footed flower bee but I've forgotten its name. Thanks!

I will leave that to someone else. Be my guest! I am not collecting 'stars'.

ID comment

OK that's your choice, it's just that it feels slightly wrong to add an ID after you have correctly stated it, albeit in a comment.
