Congratulations, Carol !
Moved from Pseudomasaris.
First Pseudomasaris from Utah on bugguide!

 
Thanks, Harmut!
It's a beautiful wasp.

 
Welcome, Carol!
Though it may be somewhat late in the season, provided you can still find Penstemon in flower, you may be able to find females foraging for pollen. This species uses Penstemon with blue to purplish corollas. Which species grow in your area? Perhaps P. cyananthus, and Penstemon carnosus?

 
I can try....
I'm going to that area again and both P. cyananthus and carnosus grow in Utah. There's always a chance!
