Not sure if this is a spider wasp, paper wasp or something entirely different. It killed the mantis.

Not sure that there is enough to go on here, but looks like this male has very wide frons like coloradensis and I did catch a female of that species that I ID'd under the scope earlier in the month.

I'm cheering for the mosquito this time! These large flies were impossible to escape, even on high mountain slopes with a good wind. Their bites were painful and left a good-size welt, but this one seemed to have a biter of its own. The mosquito stayed on its back and appeared to be feeding on it.

Bee was observed feeding on Calamintha ashei plant in full bloom. This was the beginning of the bloom for this calamint population, and an early observation of the bee compared to known samples. This is the first Blue Calamintha Bee ever photographed outside of known paratype locations. The previous records for the bee came from 16 square miles in Lake Placid, Florida. This specimen was released unharmed, only temporarily restrained for species identification photos.
