Quick question for someone who knows their bugs...
I saw something I thought was a yellow jacket, but the legs seem to be about the length of this one, but the eyes were yellow and the abdomen was at least twice as long, I thought it might me a cicada killer, but their legs are much too short in the photos I found. Any advice on what it could be would be very helpful.
