Identify this bug

ID’ing the holly plant was such a success, let’s wander into entomology or etymology.

For you Yankees thinking of moving South, this place is full of scary bugs!  Run away!

It wanted to ride on my car, but got bored.

    Oh my. Sorry that things are so strained with your niece and your neighbor. Will be praying for you, friend.

    Thanks again for running such a great site for so long.

    My preliminary research points me to a variant of the yellow jacket. You’re looking at the body from below. The red legs are wrong though, and it’s much bigger than any yellow jacket I have seen.

    This bugger showed up as I was leaving the parking lot of a potential condo I am thinking about moving to. My Nephew moved out of Charlotte last weekend and my niece is figuring out how to leave the United States, the male country that oppresses her and her Columbia Medical School degree. She hasn’t said a word to me since October.

    Throw in my obnoxious paranoid dementia suffering next door neighbor who thinks he needs to tell the NSA what I do – and there is little reason to stay here.
