Dave Shedman created the topic: Wasp ID required.
A recent addition to our garden, since the planting of the lemon pistol bush, has been this metallic blue looking wasp with a white tail. The nearest I can find to it online is a Blue Mud Dauber but I didn't see any of those with white on their back end like this one has. The pictures aren't superb but I'm hoping some of our goggaphiles (new word I just invented for South Africans who like bugs!) might be able to confirm the ID. Though I'm not a big fan of wasps (was stung a couple of times when I lived in the UK), this one is very pretty. Any ideas?

Im not an expert, but recalling what i have read in my rudimentary, old books, this is a spider wasp, of which there are a number of subspecies in SA.
