[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Most eumenine species are black or brown, and commonly marked with strikingly contrasting patterns of yellow, white, orange, or red (or combinations thereof), but some species, mostly from tropical regions, show faint to strong blue or green metallic highlights in the background colors. Like most vespids, their wings are folded longitudinally at rest. They are particularly recognized by the following combination of characteristics: 1) a posterolateral projection known as a parategula on both sides of the mesoscutum; 2) tarsal claws cleft; 3) hind coxae with a longitudinal dorsal carina or folding, often developed into a lobe or tooth; and 4) fore wings with three submarginal cells

Hi Hemant,
Impressive set o four shots of this potter wasp, I like a lot the flash used here and the good resolution level archieved with f/8 (whit this focus opening, mi little Canon SX110 lost very image quality). Well done, nice especies, TFS
