Large black wasp, hairy red abdomen
I have one rather poor picture of the face, should I post it even if it is a bit fuzzy?

 
Yes
You can add it in if you want, but you don't need it for this gal's ID. Select "add image", underneath the thumbnail images.

Is the other shot an image of the same individual? If so, then we should link them. Please let me know if you want me to do this for you.
