Art: Cicada Killer Wasp w/Prey by Artist Holly Smith
This is a female Cicada Killer Wasp pausing briefly to clean her antennae before flying off with her tasty cicada prey. She stings and paralyzes the cicadas then flies off with them to her burrow where she'll place one cicada into each "room" in her burrow to feed one of her offspring. Macabre but fascinating...
