Thread-waisted Wasp  (two photos)
Family Sphecidae

I wasn't having that much luck finding insects on this day at Strawberry Reservoir
but I did find one bush with a few of these.  I have not yet had this narrowed down to genus or
species.  © Carol Davis, 9-30-2012

thread-waisted wasp
I've often wondered what good that little skinny part of the abdomen does. Is there
a reason it's so skinny? Scarlet O'Hara would have been jealous.
