Western Yellowjacket Worker - Vespula pensylvanica - female

Western Yellowjacket Worker - Vespula pensylvanica - Female
Seattle, King County, Washington, USA
November 11, 2006
During a sunbreak, found this yellowjacket soaking up the sun. I didn't hang around for super clear photos, because I figured she was probably warm enough (and near enough to her nest) to be annoyed by a camera moving around her.
I used Tony's key to identify this yellowjacket.
