See a Feather-Legged Scoliid Wasp (Dielis plumipes) drive off a Hidalgo Mason Wasp (Euodynerus hidalgo ssp. boreoorientalis) in the photos below.

First, the Scoliid Wasp was just minding her own business, nectaring Clustered Mountain Mint (Pycnanthemum muticum).

She’s having a good hair day! You can tell she’s female because of the orange ruff of hair just below the head.

A Hildago Mason Wasp flies over, trying to get access to the same flower. As with humans, there are plenty of flowers to go around, but a fight breaks out anyway.

The larger wasp drives off the attacker, but they come back. The Scoliid Wasp raises one of her rear legs, perhaps to look larger.

She then crosses both hind legs over her head. The Mason Wasp leaves, perhaps in amazement.

The Feather-Legged Scoliid Wasp relishes her victory.

The Hidalgo Mason Wasp nectars another cluster of the Mountain Mint. Peace rules the garden.
