Good rain at last after a long hot dry spell and temperatures over 40 degrees Celsius.
This picture as this latest storm approached .
The rain also afforded a little nest building for this formidable looking wasp.
With its head down and tilting its body in a "head stand" position it rolled large balls of mud.
Flying off , it returned at minute long intervals all afternoon to repeat the process.
A very cagey and private creature, I have not yet been able to locate the nest.
As it returns to the same position continuously to collect mud I will attempt a video of this soon.
