I found this shiny miniscule wasp drowned in the wheelbarrow. It is a chalcid wasp (CHALCIDOIDAE) from the family PTEROMALIDAE (det. Paul Hoekstra).

A female. She is entirely metallic blue-green and measures 2mm in length. I haven’t been able to find a name yet so it remains nameless in the collection for now.
