We have some bee wolfs in the garden. Very interesting wasps. They dig holes and lay there eggs into them. Then they catch somebees and bring them into the holes as food for the larvae.

Here is a photo I took some weeks ago. It shows a bee wolf hauling a small stone.See how it grabsthe stone with its pincers.



The other photos I took today. Ithinkthe bee wolfsare preparingfor a second brood.





Here on the leftyou can see the remains of a bee which was probably brought as food for the first brood:

Supershots. I especially like #4 and 5. Allare very sharp andhave excellent depth of color, plusthey really show the menacing side of this critter.
