I had just pruned a rose bush and this one came along and proceeded to dig out the pith. It did that at a few cuts but I think the rain drove it off. I saw it around the garden an then I found it nesting in an old bamboo stem I had left to stand under the Passion-fruit Vine.

Thanks Stat and K, appreciated. I did have to work the yellow a bit for detail, shooting with no BG will necessitate that on my cam.
