bee vs wasp

To bee or not to bee - fractured Shakespeare. There are wild poincettias growing in the flower garden along the side of the garage. I see a bee going from one group of flowers to the next apparently gathering nectar.

I took a closer look and it looked for all the world like a wasp. The slender waist was the give-away. But I didn’t think that wasps ate nectar. I thought that they ate other insects. I still remain a bit baffled over it. Does anyone have any ideas on this apparent oddity of nature? The picture is a little blurry because of the constant movement of the wasp/bee. Lew

It could be the color red. Some insects and the bull don't take to such a color.
