the other day was a wasp with brightly colored antennae. No picture of my own, but here is someone else’s.
Thanks, What’s that bug , for this photo identifying the spider wasp, Entypus unifasciatus.
I was really struck by the antennae – bright orange, long, and waving about. Apparently their sting is incredibly painful, so I’m glad I didn’t get any closer than I did.
They are also great hunters, as you can see in the video from this fascinating blog post about tracking a spider wasp dragging a paralyzed wolf spider. So cool!
