This is a closer look at the larger or bigger of the two wasps captured in the alley behind my folks backyard. It ambushed and mounted itself on the small wasp in some raspberry bramble.

It looked as though they were engaging in reproductive activity initially. I captured them in a small food container and place it in the fridge for 2-3 hours and upon photographing/release they had disengaged from each other.
