Default My bug of the week

First sighting of one of these gorgeous little wasps this year. They are normally very hyperactive and difficult to capture but this one did allow me to hold the cornflower bud it was sitting on for a shot.
Then instead of disappearing off, it decided to investigate my finger nail. It then took off but much to my suprise came back and landed again on my hand - even managed to change camera settings with it sitting on my hand.
It then took off again but this time landed on the nearby potentilla .
