Rowney Warren Wasp

Bramble patches are always worth a good stare. This wasp had been feasting on ripe berries and wasn't flying anywhere, just sitting on a leaf looking rather content. (That's blackberry juice not blood!) I think it's a Vesupla vulgaris though separating from the similar V.germanica is always a bit tricky, balancing features against each other to see which way the decision tips.
