Eastern Cicada Killer  - Sphecius speciosus - female

Eastern Cicada Killer - Sphecius speciosus - Female
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA
September 25, 2008
Size: 50 mm
She is not going gently into that good night, but raging against the dying of the light. It's a good thing that stinger is retractable. No wonder cicadas squeal when a Killer approachs.
