Redondo Beach, Los Angeles County, California, USA

Size: Aprox. 5.5 mm
I first assumed it was a rove beetle of some type, but when I took a closer look, noticing it's thorax I realized it was a wasp. it moved in a very quick jerky crawl and I occupied it with a drop of sugar water so i could get a still shot. This specimen was found crawling around the edge of the sidewalk near a lawn.
