This is just one of the many Yellowjackets that decided to build a nest in our rented (yellow) 30 yd. dumpster.

It's colors against the yellow dumpster were perfect !!

After some quick research I found out that this particular insect is a Queen Yellowjacket. They are typically about 3/4 " to 1" in size, as is this specimen. The males, or workers, are only about 1/2 " in length.

Save for cropping out some extraneous background this photo is as taken. NO altering of this photo was done.

    The Yellowjacket's rear end reminds me of the Rolling Stones' logo.
