Spotted investigating holes in a wooden garden shed. My phone camera doesn't render the colour very well - this insect has a distinct blue metallic sheen over most of its body, going towards metallic purple at the anterior end of the abdomen. Noticeable white tip to the ovipositor and white on the hind feet.
