Now that I am looking for them, I am finding them on most of our pollinator plants. We also have quite a few of the Great Black Wasp this year, about which I have learned an interesting tidbit of information. Like some other wasps, they paralyze prey for their larvae, but house sparrows and catbirds sometimes make off with the prey before the wasp can get it to her nest. Given that we seem to have plenty of all of the above in our little corner of the world, we seem to have quite the food web going on.
