Here are the other things that caught my eye:
On the trail along the front of the woods (that separate the front meadow from the back), I have seen 3-4 large wasps with orange wings flying around where the trail exits the woods. I have always moved through this area as fast as I could, not knowing if they might be aggressive. Tonight, there was only one. I backed up a bit, and it flew towards a sandy hole in the ground a few times, so I focused on the hole and caught a photo. I was able to ID it as an Eastern Cicada Killer wasp. Colonies of this type of digger wasp can number over 100, so I guess just seeing 3-4 was lucky! According to my bug guide, although they look intimidating (and I agree with that), they rarely sting or pay any attention to people. Their holes can be up to four feet deep. There are several holes in the area, too. Glad to finally know what it is!
