Have you ever seen a huge, giant black bodied, purply winged hornet thingey, with a large orange head, and two big black eyes and antennae?

Well these are its wings.

I found this one in the very early morning in Lions Park, whilst it was raining. It is in fact a Scoliid wasp, or a mammoth solitary wasp. A fearsome looking thing, so I set up my macro rig, leaned into the manual focus, took a quick shot and scarpered.
