Caption

A German Wasp (Vespula germanica) compared to five Batesian mimics. None of the five wasp mimics can sting, but by appearing similar to a wasp, are avoided by many potential predators. All five mimics are European species that live alongside the German Wasp. Clockwise from top left: 1- German Wasp (Vespula germanica), 2 - Hoverfly (Syrphus ribesii), 3 - Hoverfly (Chrysotoxum festivum), 4 - Wasp Beetle (Clytus arietis), 5 - Sawfly (Tenthredo sp.), 6 - Hoverfly (Helophilus pendulus). All photographed in the field on a white background. Composite image.
