But I believe it's a Queen Eastern, Vespula maculifrons

 
Thanks Tony
There's plenty of pictures already for Queen Eastern Yellowjacket. Do you want any of these, or should I Frass them?

 
Please Don't Frass them
They may be something different, even if they are Eastern they are of far too good a quality to frass. I will use them for the Vespinae "Through a Lens" project in progress.

 
Moved
to the Eastern page. You've been doing a great job with those "Through a Lens" projects, and the moth pages too. Thanks Tony.
