Courious about wasp behavior. - Chalybion californicum -
Ozark Mountains, Searcy County, Arkansas, USA June 16, 2007
I'm curious about the behavior of these wasps. To an untrained observer (yours truly), a group of a dozen or so wasp are gathering on a plant in a hanging basket around dusk and bedding down for the night. Last night it was a begonia; tonight a bougainvillea, although a couple of wasps were on last night's begonia leaf too. I'd appreciate it if anyone could add any information about what's going on here. Thanks. Marvin.
