Decorated Looper - Synchlora species
Wagner notes that this is the only widespread North American caterpillar that decorates itself for camouflage. Apparently, adults must be reared to determine the species. This one was found on fleabane (Erigeron species).

American Pelecinid Wasp - Pelecinus polyturator (female)
bugguide.net/node/view/6945

Males are rare in this species--most reproduction is by parthenogenesis/thelytoky (females produced from unfertilized eggs). I have seen this striking species just a few times and photographed it twice. This one was found in my yard in Durham NC. I was going out to get the mail and I noticed it on a shrub right by the front door. It stayed put long enough for me to return with a camera.
