I'm thinking this is a left over male, yellow face and longer slightly curved antenna point that way.

Polistes fuscatus group, may be a gyne based on the date.

It was found in a place near the james river, which had lots of mulch and rich soil, she or he was found sitting on a rock besides the james river just sitting there so i thought it was a queen, she/he didn't struggle and just went into the vial I had for my aspirator. its so cool how this one would look at me while i took pictures of it, it turned its head like a dog.

I was actually thinking Polistes exclamans because you can't really see it but she's red black yellow and some green which matches with exclamans.

yes, just saw the antennae. the antennae in queens and female workers and short and not curved at the tip like that.
