This tiny wasp is Chalcididae spp., identification confirmed by Ken Walker. It was recovered from a bucket of water and thought to be dead. It revived while being looked at under the microscope! Guess the warmth of the light aided recovery.
This small wasp was identified as Xanthopimpla spp. by Ken Walker on Bowerbird website. Then identified as Poecilocryptus galliphagus by Tony D. who gave reason as to why it was not Xanthopimpla spp. It does look like the specimen of P. galliphagus on the Museum website.
This thin mud structure had been built between a box and the wall. Many of the cells are stocked with spiders. In two of the cells, a single wasp can be seen. No movement was observed while I took the photos, before we replaced the box.
This mud dauber wasp is collecting water to make her nest. She would fly regularly from her nest (under our BBQ), straight to the water in the bird bath, then to the dirt, then back to the nest. Each trip was only of short duration.
