also think about this....the wings are very similar to some wasp moth species in South America

I remember seeing my first Blue Metalmark, it was great. The picture is very nice

normally you can begin to identify grass carrying wasps by the color of the hairs on the thorax. It looks as if the one in the picture has white hair.

there are many wasps with black and red bodies. My guess is Great Golden Digger wasp

Cross Orbweaver, your typical garden spider. They are European imports that made their way across the United States

That's definitely an Ammophila wasp. There are close to 70 different species in the US, so getting the identification down to a species is often difficult.

gratography Paper Wasp
Paper Wasp commented on by gratography Little Elm, Texas, USA9 months ago

when I look at the abdomen and see a pattern of yellow, black and red bands, and also see the legs with different black and yellow marks, my guess would be Exclamens

Texas has perhaps 10 (or more paper wasp species) this fits best

gratography Paper Wasp
Paper Wasp commented on by gratography Florida, USA9 months ago

There are close to twenty different paper wasp species in the US and Florida hosts most of them. I might guess P. Bellicousus

you do not have a location, but the wasp is definitely a yellowjacket
