I found this Blackjacket in Red Butte Gardens in Salt Lake City, Utah. They are in the same
genus as Yellowjackets. © Carol Davis, 8/29/2011

This is a beautiful wasp and I hope to find some more before the bugging year is over. Bugguide says they feed
on sugary substances and on live prey.  This one was apparently feeding on nectar. © Carol Davis, 8/29/2011
