Flower Wasps at Rotunda Park

I came across this insect while walking along the northern edge of Rotunda Park this evening. I am pretty sure it’s a species of Flower Wasp family Tiphiidae. There were a number of individuals sitting on the drying flower heads of Spear Grass. In trying to identify this specimen I came across a pretty neat website lifeunseen.com. It has some fantastic images.
