NE Philly, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, USA June 7, 2009 Size: about 1/2 in. or so
This landed in front of me on the mulch while I was checking one of my gardens. It never stopped flapping its wings, but I couldn't hear them. It seemed a bit agitated, but didn't seem to mind my presence. Since I think it's a wasp of some kind, though, I didn't push my luck. Any idea what type it is?
