Wasp with its prey - Bicyrtes quadrifasciatus

Wasp with its prey - Bicyrtes quadrifasciatus
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
August 13, 2004
This wasp was acting different, repeatedly flying a few feet and landing. I didn't realize why, until I looked closely at the picture. It almost looks like the Stink Bug has it's proboscus stuck into the neck of the wasp.

where to post
Should I submit the image again in the Stink Bug page? I put it in the wasp page, because that's the one I could identify more easily.
