|Megascolia maculata male|
I have just presented Megascolia maculata in my previous post and I point out that males are smaller (3-4 cm) than females (5-6 cm) and they have a characteristic black head instead the orange colored of females. I tried to find a male on flowering plant in nearby hill. Now I post the male of M. maculata with black head searching nectar on Satureja thymbra flowers. I post two more characteristic pictures on WS.

Hi Nikos,for me your desktop settings are very good watching the quality of your pics,i can't see problems,the sharpness is excellent in the 3 pics,just the 1st WS seems a bit oversaturated. About my pic,i wrote in the note that quality is not good,but it's the only pic that i do about this rare specie and done from a long distance...have a nice weekend and thanks for you e-mail,Luciano

Very natural and pleasing shot of this male wasp. I like to take shots too of these quite photogenic insects.
