I walked outside and felt a pain in my foot and saw this huge thing guarding the bin. Its the biggest I have seen in Adelaide – what is it a potter wasp?

Dear Andrew,
We find it amusingly ironic that the “huge thing” which is the “biggest [you] have seen in Adelaide” is also one of the tiniest images we have ever received for identification purposes.  We would love to post a larger version of this image of a Spider Wasp if you have one and can provide it in a subsequent email.

Yes i figured out its a spider wasp through google – we have never seen one like this here

Thanks so much for attaching a higher resolution image.

i no have a red itchy foot – i am not sure what it did to me, either bit me or stung me

We would suppose you were stung.
