Amazing spot Courtney!
Thank you Chun!When I took this picture the wasp was indeed on top of a tree log. Unfortunately it flew away shortly after I took this picture.
Dr. Santanna Our insect specialist would love this!
I'm not a wasp expert but I think that wasp is trying to inject it's egg into the grub inside the wood.Try reading the description here in http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/747...
Carolina - your wasps are definitely cool. You take great photographs!
Thanks all!I was hiking on the Bruce Trail in Southern Ontario when I found this wasp. It looked like it was in the process of hatching/shedding as it's tail was uncurling before my eyes. Any wasp experts?
hahaha :) this one is very very cool
And I thought my wasps were cool!
