Author's notes

European Wasps - might need to zoom in to see them. This photo taken at Pond Creek on the Australian Alps Walking trail but they were all along the trail from Orroral Valley at least to Pond Creek Flats. Had to be careful of them at all snack stops and campsite.

Hi and thanks for your contribution/photo. I have downloaded the original photo, cropped it and added it back to aid in identification.
