Hollywood Cemetary, Richmond City County, Virginia, USA July 7, 2008 Size: 20-25mm
These wasps (there were 4-6 on one flower bush) varied quite a bit in size; there seemed to be two groups of sizes- ones which seemed unusually big for a wasp, and ones that seemed about normal (bigger ones are females I'd guess). They also moved around quite a bit, so unfortunately this was as good a shot as I could get.
