Your letter to the bugman:  I have a large wasp like flying creature with a black tip bottom and mostly orange.  They hang around my flowering plants.  About 15-20 mm. Long antenna.  Very scary. Never seen before.

Great Golden Digger Wasp

Dear Deb,
This is a Great Golden Digger Wasp.  They are not aggressive and they hunt Katydids, not to eat, but to provision the nest for the young.  Adult Great Golden Digger Wasps are vegan pollinators.

Location: Oregon
