Thanks for the ID David.

Hello Shekainah. These belong to Hymenoptera - Vespdiae - Eumeninae. Sorry, no genus or species. They are often referred to as Potter wasps or Mason Wasps. The invertebrate fauna (and some avian) of the Philippines from the central islands and south share many similarities because they encompass the same bio-region. I hope this helps.

Thanks Chun, do you know the specific ID?
