Sure is colorful! Are you sure it is not some kind of wasp? There are a blue million...as I found out when I looked for the ID of one last year.
I am not sure at all Joy - any help accepted.
Wasp or not, looks like it could have a bad attitude!
I tend to steer clear of all lifeforms wearing leather jackets Kevin if I can help it.
Uh-Oh. I better get outta this gallery now. I was stung by one of these twice while mowing near their nest last summer. Ouch!
But I seem to becoming immune to their stings... So I reckon I'll stay a little longer. ;)
Sorry, no YS, but I will give it a like for this photo.

Yes, not a friendly looking critter is it Liam
I know how you feel with wasps. I disturbed a nest in an orchard once while picking apples. I was swarmed then stung, dozens of them.
