Wasp attacking a Crane Fly?
As a new member/poster I thought I'd ask a quick question about something I saw a couple of days ago.
I watched a wasp take hold and dismember a large crane fly - systematically taking the legs off, clamping the head in its mandables, chewing it up and then flying off with the body (rather erratically as the fly was so big)... I'm not an expert on wasp behaviour so I wondered is this normal?
I have never seen anything like it it in this country...?
Great site by the way.
