Seen here with an Orb Weaver Victim
Found under bridge.
One of the three wasps i saw within a minute standing in my sunny garden.
July 7 2010
I am guessing this is a mating ritual although I never seen any mating occur in the ten minutes I was there trying to get some photos
in the damp muddy area beside the creek
Another form of nests, I think.
# Black and Yellow Mud Dauber
This one was scanning the daisies for prey.
One of two of these large wasps hunting across a passionfruit vine.
Known as the Mud Dauber Wasp; flying around my patio and deck, alighting on a flower pot, then crawling under a tarp covering my wood pile.
On wet mud at shore of pond.
A mud dauber of some sort.
One of many creatures visiting a small pool/mudbank on this rapidly drying hillside. Sceliphron?
