Spider Wasp  (four photos)
Genus Ageniella accepta

Ageniella accepta spider
I have yet to get a really good shot of these wasps,
but this one was okay because of the
Rocky Mountain Bee Plant it was
 on Antelope Island. Carol Davis 8-13-2018

orange spider wasp
Insects can't resist these gorgeous plants and
fight each other for the right to enjoy the nectar

One of the traits of this wasp is that the eyes are almost parallel.
This is quite evident as you look down on the head in this photo. 
Some day
 I hope to get a better shot of an Ageniella wasp.  I see them quite often
 but so far they are quick and elusive.  Carol Davis, 9-16-2010

  I found this wasp on a large sunflower plant.  For the last
 half of the summer, this one plant I visited regularly was a
"disco" for insects.  I don't know what attraction this plant
 had, but it was popular.  Carol Davis, 9-16-2010
