Yellow tailed wasp

I have some luck with flying insects lately, I do not even have to leave the confines of my garden.
I unfortunately do not have a scientific name for this beauty, if you do please leave me a note and I’ll add it.

Brown Veined White Butterfly (Belenois aurota)

Photo 2 the 2016 Collection

As a great many living on the South African highveld (or high plateau), I often move to my patio to enjoy the fresh air.
My house is located in the south part of Johannesburg near a natural reserve and that means there is a buzzing wildlife around me.
I see from the 2 legged to the 8, from insects to reptiles going past birds and mammals, all day long every day.
There are no large predators, I live in a built up area after all, but buzzing never the less.
I will be posting some of these creatures in a new category “From my Garden
Today’s is the commonly seen “brown veined white butterfly” (Belenois aurota).
