  9. Don says:

    It looks a lot like a Red Paper wasp, but the eyes seem wrong… could be a variant.

  10. Alan S. Hochman says:

    Hi Don, I really don’t know what kind it is, but it wasn’t easy to photograph! Every time I got close, it buzzed me and then settled down. This was more of a “point n shoot” photo! lol

    It does look like a red paper wasp. I found a good representation at http://www.greensmiths.com/paper.htm See the picture of the wasp on finger, close up.
    I also found info at http://www.adkinsbeeremoval.com/bee-id-chart/paper-wasp2.html
    Your photo is spectacular, wonderful intense color and clarity. something for me to aspire to.

    It’s an Yellow Mud Dauber. Mud daubers are long, slender wasps; the latter two species above have thread-like waists. The name of this wasp group comes from the nests that are made by the females, which consist of mud molded into place by the wasp’s mandibles.
