Potter Wasp (Eumenes fraternus) - Eumenes fraternus

Male
Lovely portrait. You can tell it is a male by its more slender appearance (females are more robust), hooked antennal tips, and white face.

 
Male?
Males can be distinguished from females only by counting the number of antenna sections (hard to do) and by smaller size campared to female (if you have the female to compare). Hooked antennas are no proof.
