I couldn't believe my eyes when I spied this beautiful wasp in Red Butte Gardens. These yellows
 flowers
(and I don't know their name) were covered in bees and wasps. © Carol Davis, 9-19-2011

I could have gotten a lot more photos if my camera hadn't taken so long to process because the wasp
walked around on these flowers forever. Maybe that's how it earned its name of
"ambulatorius"
(ambulatory - referring to walking).
