Insects/Bugs/Bees/Butterflies - Paper Wasp - Polistes
Class:Insecta Order:Hymenoptera Family:Vespidae Genus:Polistes


I love the markings on these wasps. The male has a blank face and a curl at the end of his antenna. I see them from April right through the end of the Summer.

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