Thank you much,
not only for the identification but also for explaining.
Yes, this is the same individual.

 
Happy to study, learn, and share
And thank you too for posting these nice photos. They really show the large "banana-like" 3rd antennal segment and long ovipositor well!

BTW, I too am an avid member of the native plant society in my state (CA)...and got interested in bugs through that avenue as well :-)

Is this the same specimen as the 1st photo in this series?
If so, it's not a male (as presently indicated)...the 1st photo shows the conspicuous ovipositor of a female. If it's a different specimen it should be "unlinked" from the first image (to follow standard BugGuide posting protocols).
