What kind of wasp is this?

Asked September 27, 2016, 2:03 PM EDT

The tree by our deck is rotted out and a nest of these wasps are there now. They don't seem too aggressive but I 'm curious.

This is a yellowjacket (Vespula) but I can't determine the species from these photos. There are many species, if you are curious google "vespula" and look through the images.
