National Insect Week – day 6

Today’s insect photo is of a Wasp.
Whether you call them Jaspers or Yellow Jackets, you are probable familiar with these handsome black and yellow predators. They spend their time catching the flies, aphids and other insects from air to feed to their hungry larval sisters. The more I learn about these much maligned and misunderstood creatures, the more I love them!
