Tarantula Hawk Wasp

Tarantula Hawk Wasp -  Prescott,Az.

Heres more info via:

Several species of the wasps known as "tarantula hawks" inhabit the desert lands of the southwest. Tarantula hawks are most active in the summer, during the day, although they avoid the highest temperatures. Females give the wasps their common name. Like all members of this genus, they require a spider to serve as host for their larvae, and in the case of the local species, tarantulas are the preferred nursery.
