It was "Wasp Day" on Antelope Island and I was lucky enough to see this hunk while I
was there (I wish there was a holiday called "Wasp Day"). © Carol Davis 9-27-2016

tuxedo wasp
If I were to name this wasp, it would be called "Tuxedo Wasp" because it is so
dapper-looking in that black and white outfit.  I think it was going to a formal
dance or maybe a fancy-schmancy dinner.  © Carol Davis 9-27-2016

white-tipped abdomen

white and black wasp
I don't think spiders have a chance right now because there are oodles of
spider wasps, mostly plain black, hovering around the rabbitbrush on
the Island. I love both spiders and wasps, so I'm torn. © Carol Davis
