Ok if you didn’t get out today, why not. LOL So I was out but did not take many photos because I was on a scouting mission with fellow NPAT instructors (FtW chapter) for the upcoming Prairie Seekers class on Saturday. If you didn’t sign up for this one, consider signing for the next one. 🙂
So for my afternoon walk, I got to witness this event. How delightful to see her cover her hole. Many wasps live in the ground. Additionally a mama of some species bury their larvae with a paralyzed arthropods like grasshoppers or crickets. The family of Thread-waisted Wasps (Sphecidae) do this behavior. However the family ID is tentative.
