This is evidently a popular roosting spot. Last September, every evening we had a large group of Five-banded Tiphiid wasps coming to roost on this plant in front of our house. Now this year there is different species roosting on the same plant! The new guys are quite a bit smaller, less elongated, and a bit more colorful than the former visitors.
