purple wasp, mating - Eremnophila aureonotata - Male Female
Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge, Prince William County, Virginia, USA
September 18, 2010
This was a fairly common wasp in the refuge however, when feeding they're very flittery so I was unable to snap a shot of a single one. I was happy though that I caught a mating pair on "film", or well, memory card haha.
