Sorry for the shaky footage, but this little one hopped onto my wife’s desk and I had to catch it and video it before I put it outside. Some kind of wasp? Super energetic and intelligent, entrancing really. Really tiny.
Thank you a bunch! I was mostly curious in general – I love parasitoid wasps, cool to know! I always forget to say, but I live in northern VA in the US. I hadn’t seen a wasp with such a unique abdomen shape before, but it was a very quick and jumpy flier so I’m not so surprised.
