Last of three individuals for the day; photo only taken with my phone, but still seems diagnostic.

This one has almost no well-defined postmedian spot band on the ventral hindwing, but the combination of checkered fringe and "straight" subapical marks on forewing, in addition to overlay of silvery scales throughout hindwing, likely safely identify the species. I pursued it hoping it might be Linda's, but, alas, I don't think so.

I found this wasp near a light on my house. The light was surrounded by araneid orb weavers (probably Araneus). Once the wasp got somewhat stuck, and the spider shot out to nab it, but being rather large and heavy, the wasp fell out of the web in the nick of time. This guy was pretty chunky, maybe 2-3 cm from head to the end of the abdomen.
