Eumenes potter wasp in Utah
My old heart skips a beat when I see a stunning
potter wasp like this. I only wish I could convince
people how beautiful wasps can be. This one was in
Big Cottonwood Canyon, Salt Lake County, UT

Salt Lake City, Utah. 
There is a short Youtube video (by
Legend 813a) that shows a Eumenes wasp, similar in shape to this
one, building a mud nest. Worth watching.  © Carol Davis 9-4-2012
