    Yikes! I think I just saw one of those at my pond. I have red hornets, yellow jackets and all varieties of birds, plus bees, come for a drink in this drought. Mostly water-hole truce holds. As far as I can tell, but I did watch a grackle eat a yellow jacket yesterday.

    Those mandibles look like they could tear a bee in two.

    They look so pretty in those pictures, though!

    Excellent photos of an obscure, often overlooked wasp species. Your shots are far better than any I found on a quick search on the net. You should consider submitting these to a stock agency.
