Wasp (male & female)
I was looking for insects in the bushes at Promontory Point
when I caught a wisp of something go flying by.
It was so small I wasn't sure that it was an insect. I looked,
couldn't find anything and then two came
flying by trying to reproduce in flight. It was then I saw just how
tiny these little wasps are. Wow!
This is a female since it has an ovipositor at the end of the abdomen

This is the little male that is darker and has no
ovipositor. They were both so cute I wanted to take them home.
According to Bugguide.net, these tiny wasps (larvae) are parasitic on
beetles. These two were just flying
around and what they were eating, I have no idea( but they were
busy). © Carol Davis, 8-1-2010
