Re: Buzz, flutter, hop

Yuki, you should try this:

One species, Bembix americana spinolas, is one of the largest and most conspicuous sand wasps. Its habit of hovering uncomfortably close to a person for the purpose of catching flies attracted to that individual is often mistaken for aggression. But these are even-tempered wasps, and it is possible to feed them out of your hand by presenting them with a living fly not quite capable of flight. Sand wasps are occasionally mistaken for hornets or yellow jackets because of their banded color pattern.

Oh gosh!  Tempted to try it but what if I mis-identify the wasp and get a handful of hornets???
