  3. That is really such a vibrant yellow and I almost did not see the wasp, it blended in so nicely.
    Great photo for WW.

  4. The wasp is different that what I've seen here...but of course, being in different countries, that's not surprising, is it?!?! Yellow on yellow...very camouflaging!! Wonder if it would turn pink if it landed on a pink bloom?! I know, now I'm being silly...

  8. Goldenrod is such a beautiful wildflower and unfortunately gets such a bad reputation as an allergen. Very pretty photos.

  10. My dear friends, thank you for the nice comments. The scientific of this plant is solidago sp. I need your expert opinion on the wasp. I think it is the cerceris fumipennis. Please correct me if I got the wasp’s name wrong.

  11. That's one pretty picture! Beautiful yellow. I've seen that wasp here but didn't know what it was called. Glad to see the name you mentioned.

    Enjoy your day.

  12. Goldenrod is a prolific native plant in my garden and I love it. It survives well because the deer wont eat it. I will look at it differently now that I know it is also growing in your garden in Malaysia. Love your blog ..beautiful photographs. Pam

  15. I think this goldenrod is native plant of Canada and widely grown in US too. If this wasp is the cerceris, then I have just found from the internet that it has shown promising potential in biosurveilance.
