Red-headed Ash Borer
Neoclytus acuminatus

I was going to cut up some limbs into small pieces that had been lying around for a few
days so I could put them in the garbage when I saw something crawling around in them
and I knew this had to be good.  These were running around separately for awhile and then
decided to party together. I've never seen this species before.  © Carol Davis, 7-20-2011

They were so fast so it was good they got together so I was able to photograph them. What
a beautiful little species. I guess their favorite wood is cuttings.
