Hello! I would like to know the identification of this flying insect please? thanks!
Signature: Respondents choice. No preference.
Though it is not a Wasp, it is an effective wasp mimic as the common name of the American Hornet Moth implies, and we believe we have correctly identified your individual, though a higher resolution image would be helpful. According to BugGuide: “In flight they closely resemble wasps, even producing the droning sound.”
