Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Thread-waisted Wasps - Great Golden Digger Wasp
Class:Insecta Order:Hymenoptera Family:Sphecidae Genus:Sphex


I kept seeing this orange and black wasp whisking around a patch of Honeyvine Milkweed. Finally was able to get some pictures of it nectaring in the early evening.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
