Winged terrors…

I’d read about these crazy wasps that hunt tarantulas, paralyze them, then lay their eggs on them, but never thought I’d see one in person. Just about stepped right over this pair… It was really cool watching the giant 2″+ wasp struggling to get the small, yet not-quite paralyzed tarantula dragged into deeper bush. Gnarly. This crimson-winged beauty must be what spiders have nightmares about.
