I noticed this Cuckoo Wasp while we were at a bird hide & followed her for a while. She found a Potter Wasps nest & started to chew a small hole. Then she laid her egg inside, closed the hole & dried it by flapping her wings.

Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
