Wonderful series! Your wasp is a sand wasp, Steniolia scolopacea, a real beauty.

Lovely Gulf Fritillary. Do you see a lot of them? They're very abundant this year in my area of the Texas Gulf Coast.


Thanks Monica!  Yes I suspected it was a sand wasp, which I had never seen before.  Beautiful eyes.

We do get a good number of Gulf Fritillary B-flies certain time of the year (usually late summer).  This year, however, I'm seeing a lot more of Tiger Swallowtails which is a real treat!
