Found this cuckoo bee in the south of the Netherlands near by Eindhoven.
The blue eyes got me confused with specifies we are dealing with. I was thinking about Nomada rufipes but this seems not correct.

Does anybody else have any idea which species we are dealing with ?
Or give me a direction so i can look further.

Kind regards,
Richard Fasen attached the following image:

Hi Richard, not easy to see, but it reminds me of an Oxybelus wasp (Crabronidae, Crabroninae), I've recently detected. Hopefully it may give a direction.

(you should move the thread to forum "Other insects, spiders, etc."

If you experienced a very sluggish site recently, it may have been because someone tried to upload a maliciuous script by force. It appears to have failed. The visitor was blocked further access.
