Thanks for sharing an image of this very interesting Smalbandad ekbarkbock with its striking colours and lovely details that is well seen. The patterns and colours on its shield reminds me quite a lot about the Blister beetle I once shared here on Trek Nature, but its paws and headpart is not similar to that of the Blister beetle. This image is very sharp and well composed.
Best regards and please send my regards to Ulla too. I miss her presence around the site.

Between the 2 photos I love much more the one
in the WS, because of the more closer photo,
the POV you choose and the framing you give, TFS

A fine presentation of this wasp look-a-like. Superb overall clarity and beautifully marked body that really does remind me of a wasp. Seems like your little wood pile is filled with interesting insects. Well done!!

Ravie de voir une nouvelle image de ta part! Un coléoptère que j'ai aussi dans mes archives, mais sur une vitre, ce qui ne donne pas une image très naturelle:-)
P. arcuatus s'est posé sur un bois à la coloration jaune, ce qui livre un arrière-plan tout à fait adéquat. Merci de ce posting intéressant.
Un bonjour à Ulla aussi

You are right it causes tragedy on wooden pieces. I have seen same or similar species here. But this is a great macro shot of Wasp-like Beetle from dorsal POV. Great details of sharp focus. DOF and diagonal composition very nice as like workshop.
Çok teşekkürler dostum. iyi geceler, iyi bir hafta sonu dilerim.

this is really special and unique. The yellow stripes on the black body is o attractive.
The details are so sharp, and i like this clean image so well.
Exciting specie to be shared.
