Wasp does dissection

August 18, 2015

Yesterday we sat and watched this wasp dissect a dead honeybee.

The body part arrangement is how the wasp laid them out.

It first removed all 4 wings and then the legs, it proceeded to remove the abdomen by cutting the petiole, followed by the head.

At each stage it took time to eat any sweetness, e.g. nectar from the honey crop.

It spent a long time chewing at the thorax and finally flew off with it!
