Ichneumon Wasp
Ichneumon ambulatorius

I couldn't believe my eyes when I spied this beautiful wasp in Red Butte Gardens. These yellows
(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
(ambulatory - referring to walking).
