Buzz, flutter, hop

I thought this was a Yellow Jacket until I saw those big green eyes.  Not sure what it is, maybe a type of a Sand Wasp?

Re: Buzz, flutter, hop

It is definitely not a wasp. Wasps have mouths. This is some kind of a bee.

Beautiful shots! All three of them!

Butterful butterflies!

We don't have these where I live. Only the "more ordinary" ones.

Thanks Robiro. Most of these butterflies don't occur very close to where I live either. Butterfly houses are wonderful places.

Re: Buzz, flutter, hop

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.

Re: Successful hunter

True keepers, Robiro.. especially love the killer shot for great light, colors and details - excellent! Checked Exif there is three hours between the shots, long hunt for spider  and long photo session for you.. perfectly spotted and presented, thank you for sharing,

Actually, Bruno, I knew somebody would be checking my story by having a look at EXIF data for "time taken". In reality, my camera is still on "winter time". So the actual hours were +1. The first shot I took on my way up to the resting place on a nearby hill at 4:27 p.m. and I checked the spider on my way back at 7:19 p.m. only to see it already injecting venom and dissolving enzymes into that poor hoverfly...
