Thank you, gratography. I don't know much about the species in this region so I enjoyed the article. If I read correctly, the yellow face means this one is a male, yes?

to add some more...Northern Paper Wasps are very common in Maryland. They have a variety of looks including a mostly solid color body like the specimen in the picture.
