Potter Wasps?

We do find things we can not name. On a regular basis! And if we can't name the bug, we have no idea if it is a good bug or a bad bug. Often I ask my step-mother for help..a biologist by training, a lover of pollinators in retirement, she always helps. Or refers us to the right page on www.bugguide.net.

So here is the Potter Wasp. Not named for Harry Potter:

in all likelyhood this grows to a wasp..what we do know is that it leads to something that eats caterpillars, and we have plenty of those that need eating so we are keeping it!
