Thanks Fred, actually this was just the camera macro, handheld over my head. However, I do have the DCR150, but did not have it with me at the time.

Thanks Annie for looking. And yes, they can deliver a nasty sting, and worse if more than a few are after you.

Raghu, I am not sure that this is the same. As far as I know, this is an adult. They reach a total length of about 1 1/2 inch, with the tail being the longest part. Really not a very large insect in body. Wing spread might reach 1 inch. Now, this is just my observations.

Thanks for looking and commenting.

Jerry
