Velvet Ant

While I was painting outside the other night, I saw this bright red velvet ant.  I tried to get a photo, but it kept ducking under leaves and was running erratically, so none of my pictures came out.  This was the best one; you can see its red abdomen in the middle of the screen.
I think this is only the third time in my life I've seen a velvet ant (actually not an ant, but a flightless wasp), so I was happy to notice it.
