Spider Wasp on Lance-Leaved Goldenrod

Here’s another wasp I’m not quite sure I correctly identified.  I believe it is a Spider Wasp.  Regardless, it was one of the pollinators that shared their meadow with me in early September.  Like other wasps and bees I’ve photographed, this one didn’t seem to pay any attention to my presence.  Perhaps because I was sitting still and it approached me rather than the other way around.

From what I’ve read Spider Wasps can be aggressive and have quite a painful sting.  I guess it’s a good thing it didn’t mind me being there.

This Ailanthus Webworm Moth was making its way among wildflowers when I saw it in early September.
