Yes
Yes, aerial yellowjacket Dolichovespula arenaria. Possibly a male specimen. Compare with my photo of a D. arenaria male.

 
I agree.
Definitely a male specimen, and it has the right pattern for D. arenaria. Nice images!

 
Thanks
for the confirmation. With some other close looking yellowjackets, it's good to get knowledgable opinions.
