    These guys are pretty amazing. It isn’t uncommon to see one with a honey bee…but, in this case it is a yellow jacket.

    Thanks. I used to think the idea of putting a camera in a cell phone was ridiculous. But now appreciate the wisdom of it. Now...when I see something to catch....the camera is in my pocket instead of its case at home.

    Looks like an assassin bug. There are many different kinds.

    Yep, one of the many varieties of assassin bugs. Most are very timid and the moment you approach they will push the prey off of their proboscus and hide. But not this one! He/she ignored me while I took a dozen photos....and was still sucking yellow jacket juice when I walked away.
