This is a wasp I caught in my yard. I don't know if I'd ever seen this kind before. It was big, and fast-moving. Even in the jar, it never stopped moving.

A bunch of stuff from the arboretum, among other places:
Katydids are all over the place.
This is a freshly-moulted milkweed bug, next to its old skin.
I wonder if these are young argiope orb-spiders that haven't grown into their distinctive yellow and black coloring yet. Or maybe they're just males, smaller and less flashy.
I found lots of little inchworms on these flower clusters.
I find these little caterpillars to be very attractive, but hard to photograph because their heads are always down in the flowers.
Here's an inchworm I found in a white rose early one evening.
