First time for me to see a female.
mini saddlebag-like spot on wing
Beautiful red wasp
Lots and lots of wasps interested in this plant. Very dense growth, vine-y, and by the looks of how it has crowded everything else out, invasive.
Damaged wings, or malformed? Curled at tips.
Second picture is of a different individual, but also missing a part of its wing.
Chunky fly-ish wasp.
Large. A little unusual to see a silver-spotted skipper resting like this. It was just after a brief rainshower, maybe it was warming up/drying off?
biggun, chunky, hairy
In tree. The second one seen in area. The spots are visible in some photos, close or tucked into body.
