Mason Wasp

Potter or Mason Wasps get their name from the mud structure they make to house their offspring. The University of Texas at
Austin has a wonderful article on these wasps.  The young eat moth larvae and the adults feed on nectar.  They are also called
solitary wasps because they aren't usually communal.  This wasp was enjoying the beautiful area around Payson Lakes
in Utah County, Utah.  © Carol Davis, 7-6-2008
