These wasps that I've found on a couple of occasions in the Jordanelle wetlands in Wasatch County,
Utah, are gorgeous creatures. I never get tired of photographing them.  © Carol Davis, 9-30-2012


Eumenes wasp
They are non-aggressive wasps but they wander around a lot so it's hard to get one
to stand still long enough to get a good shot.  © Carol Davis, 9-30-2012


Eumenes potter wasp
We are really lucky to have such beautiful and beneficial wasps in Utah. Be brave and go
in for a close-up look at them and take a few pictures of your own. Your camera probably has
a macro or macro-zoom setting.  © Carol Davis, 9-30-2012
