Habitat: Pavement behind my house, the entire area is concrete and she was walking around 


Length: Half an inch


Color: Darker brown head, the backside gets a bit lighter


Distinguishing characteristics: Big gaster, i can't make out much else


Distinguishing behavior: N/A


Nest Description: N/A


Nuptial Flight Date: Must have been today, 4/13/19, since she still has her wings and was walking around outside 


Pictures: I'm sorry about the quality. It is super small and I'm not good enough with the phone camera to find a way to focus it super well
