"THREAD-WAISTED" DIGGER WASP



Another nice visitor to the Potato plants this afternoon - a Digger Wasp (there are over 110 species of this type of wasp in the UK - you tell me which it is?!)

This one has its paralysed prey caught underneath it - difficult to tell what it is - maybe a LeafHopper, maybe a Hoverfly, maybe a Spider. It will be carried back to the Wasp's nest where it will be eaten alive by the developing grubs...

Nice!
