Mason Wasp

This wasp flew into our porch while we were taking photos of a green lacewing. At first, I thought it was a cicada killer, but further study revealed that it was a mason wasp. Details matter! A few days later, I saw this same wasp carrying a caterpillar. I followed it and it landed on our back porch. It carried the caterpillar into a hole in the wood. I suspect there are baby wasps in the hole.
