Hunter's little paper wasp

Polistes dorsalis


A variety of paper wasp. A little smaller than the big red ones I'm used to seeing. Rust colored with yellow banding and dark brown wings. Their honey comb shaped nests were everywhere on this property (not pictured) and ranged in size from 1 inch around to 4 inches around (though there may have been bigger ones also)
