I got some cool pictures of this wasp the other day. It was very cooperative. I still had to get way too close than I wanted to, but hey.

See those three spots on its head that kind of look like eyes? They are! Wasps have those cool compound segmented eyes, but they have two different kinds of eyes. This is actually a lot more common than you might think! These are called ocelli.

I think the wasp really, really loves this one flower.
