Good shot. He/she must be tiny!

They look feathery those legs and the body is a beautiful burnt orange. I love your quote - I see some new and interesting creature every time I go out with my camera these days it seems. I don't know what this one is.

Does look like a (handsome) wasp.
Normally I'm so busy trying to stay away from wasps that I wouldn't see any detail, or want to, but you manage to show his beauty in this fabulous photo, Kerri.
Thanks for sharing it.

great shot! here is a link I came upon while trying to google it: http://www.simplegiftsfarm.com/insect-identification.html#INV
it requires an upload of the photo and I did not want to do so without your permission... so I thought I would just pass along link.

also check out Linda Carson's blog today www.the7msnranch.com; your wasp and her wasp are almost exact opposite in color patterns... pretty freaky insect world :)

Great macro...makes that critter look very beautiful. Love its color.
