Agraulis vanillae - Gulf Fritillary Cat. to Wasp  - Agraulis vanillae

Agraulis vanillae - Gulf Fritillary Cat. to Wasp - Agraulis vanillae
Found at Ferndale Preserve, taken to The Reserve at Lost Lake, Lake County, Florida, USA
March 31, 2016
This is Agraulis vanillae. We found him at a place known as Ferndale preserve, and took him to our house so we could watch him form his chrysalis and transform. At first, we were blind to see the wasp on its back in plain sight, until we saw ~40 of them a few weeks later. you see, the only reason we saw this wasp on his back is because I was going back and cropping all of the images so I could post them to BG. I cant believe we never saw it! We were zooming in on the pictures, and PICKED IT UP to collect it and put in the habitat! I feel really bad since it died, although the eggs were probably already inside of the cat. Anyway, ID of the wasps would be much appreciated. Thank you for your time and help!


Day #1 = 3/31/16, day of collection.
