A yellowjacket wasp. I believe this is Dolichovespula arenaria, the common aerial yellowjacket, which is found throughout the US, particularly on the coasts. This specimen very thoughtfully died on my front steps a few weeks ago, when it started getting cold at night.
Rendered in transparent watercolor on Aquarius II paper.
