Hey Lynette
I just sent you an email about losing the original jpg of the photo above. Please send me the orginial jpg of this photo. It was uncropped and about 1 meg in size.

You can email it to me at billdroadrunner01@yahoo.com

Thanks a million

I think this is a queen paper wasp, I love it
Hi all, I think this is a queen, and not a worker. The adomen looks longer.

Moved from Polistes.

Polistes annularis, female (NC)
A very nice series of pictures (and apparently the first of this species on bugguide)! Note the contrastingly coloured apical flagellomeres and the slender first metasomal segment (as in P. exclamans which is heavily marked with yellow). Otherwise similar to P. metricus.
