Tarantula Hawk Wasp

Tarantula Hawk Wasp

I saw a Tarantula Hawk (a big black wasp) hunting for tarantulas in some rocks in a customers’ garden, but by the time I ran back to the truck for the camera and got back to it, the wasp was gone. But Ed Bustya found a dead one and sent these photos along. It’s a bit dried up and missing some legs, but it still looks pretty “buggy.”
