Is this one of the wasps in your videos? Your videos are wonderful, very professional, not like my clumsy ones. But, I suggest that you don't leave comments on info pages. It has been discussed in the forums; Comments on info pages. Furthermore more people is likely to find your videos if you use the forums, general discussion, than if you bury them in the species page.

Sorry - I didn't know the protocol. I'm glad you enjoyed
the videos . More on the way.

Great videos
I'm really enjoying these as well, especially the Dasymutilla nigripes video!
