Ectemnius Cephalotes

Square-headed Digger Wasp.

Posing on granite, note the "brushes" around the sting. 300+MC-20 natural light.



In the burrow, an old oak post. 60 macro setup with flash.

I think he's just looking for it, either that or a dentist.

A dentist will teach him how to sting big time.

Re: Ectemnius Cephalotes

Lovely images but the lack of a yellow stripe across the back of the thorax and the striping along the legs, makes me doubt that it is cephalotes. Some of the species are very difficult to separate.

That looks more likely. Strangely, as our most widespread species, it is absent from my book.
