Some have white faces. Why?
Here's also a better image of one dragging away a Red Roarer. They seem to be able to pick the juicier female cicadas. One wasp dropped out of the sky with its heavy payload right next to me.

Hundreds building burrows in sandy bank near rose gums, which are covered in Red Roarer cicadas.
