Weevil Wasp (Cerceris sp.)
Wasp with a captured weevil (on Vitis vulpina) at the edge of a dense mixed forest. It wasn't keen on sharing and quickly flew away with its prey when approached!
Female Weevil Wasps typically dig nests in the soil. Prey which have been paralyzed via venom (from the wasp's stinger) are dragged into these nests--where they are then parasitized (and eggs are laid within the body).
