WASP Cicada Killer?

Post by Olympusman »

From the looks of the markings on this wasp, it looks like a species of Cicada Killer. Anyone want to take a shot at the ID?

Hi, this looks like german wasp (Vespula germanica), a common big wasp specie not difficult to see this days, I think are omnivorous, don't know if cicadas are in their menu... :lol:
