Thank you Paul .
It was quite brightly marked Yellow a Black with a striped Thorax , not really like the images of O. ornata that i have seen .Perhaps it is a variable species .

Annulata is my first thought as well, but pictures are too small for me to be sure.

It should be female annulata, but I cannot establish the crucial features....
