Yellow Jacket which is also a wasp - they are not hairy like the honeybee.
Their nests or colony only has a few members (a handful).
 
You will see them more frequently in the late summer when
They "brood up" or increase their numbers. They can be aggressive
and are attracted to meat, open trash and sweets, ie soda pop cans,
