This Mason Wasp-Parancistrocerus sp (possibly) was going from flower to flower on this American Burnweed-Erechtites hieraciifolius trying for some pollen in our yard.

Eventually these flowers do open a bit more but for now the going was difficult.

  1. Good picture of the wasp. Texas dandelions go through a phase in which they look like your American burnweed.

  2. I don’t mean to pry, but what kind of a mason doesn’t own a crowbar?
