I can't recall seing a wasp spider. We do have somethin similar, called a "Garden Spider" which is not exactly a great name. But it is a little bit bigger (mass wise) , but it is not a long as it is quite round. But is also black and yellow.
I'm sure I have pictures of it somewhere , but doubt if I can find it if I go looking. But if I run accros it I'll post it.

Subject: [iris-photos] Rock star and wasp spider
Rock star rebloomed in Germany in early September.
The wasp spider asked me to hybridize an iris in its colors black, yellow and white. It hopes that its insect victims will not detect it so fast if it hides in such an iris flower. So I have a good hybridizing goal for the next years......( smile).
Linda, Chuck, Loic and Griff and all the others who post pictures - I enjoy your pictures very much and I hope you will post many more pictures.
