Photo of the day #1

I thought I would start a new ‘Photo of the day’ theme on Wild Hastings and dig out some old photos taken around this time of year.

Mellinus arvensis with prey on gravestone

Today it’s this photo of a solitary wasp Mellinus arvensis. This late summer/autumn species preys on flies and can be found lurking around anywhere flies hang out. This particular wasp was one of many hunting on the grave stones in Fairlight Church graveyard.
