Potter Wasp ~ Day 238

In researching this black wasp on my deck sedum, it looks like a Potter Wasp. There are a variety of Potter Wasps in North America. Those in the genus Euodynerus look similar to each other, with some species requiring close inspection to differentiate. Black bodies have a short yellow band above the waist on the thorax. Usually they will leave you alone if you don’t invade their space. I kept my distance with my camera. More amazing little critters in my deck garden.

  1. Great shot! They don’t stay still very long!! The worst wasp we have is the Tarantula, luckily I have never been stung by one of those. My worst sting came from an ant, although the red wasp sure packs a punch.
