Potter Wasp

Eumenes verticalis

Hymenoptera: Vespidae

Identification by Richard Vernier based on color pattern on T2 and presence of two comma-shaped yellow spots on mesoscutum. Male specimens (identified by the hooked antennae) are almost always less typical, hence more difficult to tell apart, than females.
