Friday's Foto

The Great Golden Digger Wasp may look frightening, but are relatively docile (unless handled). This impressive individual was found digging a tunnel for laying its eggs near the base of the Civil War Soldiers' Monument in Green-Wood Cemetery. The plantings at this locations offer an abundance of nectar for the adult wasps.
