Potter wasp

Parancistrocerus pedestris?

Description:

They feed on flower nectar and small caterpillars.Potter Wasps play a vital role in pollinating nearby plants. Although it feeds on nectar, the wasp becomes covered with pollen as it moves around the plant to harvest this nectar. As it flies off, it transfers the pollen to other surfaces and places, allowing the flower to propagate.
