Took the attached photo today at Ludington State Park in Ludington, MI. Would appreciate help in ID.
This is one of the Potter Wasps in the subfamily Eumeninae, and we believe we have correctly identified it as Eumenes fraternus based on images posted to BugGuide. Potter Wasps are solitary wasps that build small mud nests provisioned with caterpillars that look like miniature ceramic urns or vases.
