Caption: Thread-waisted wasp. Macrophotograph of a thread-waisted wasp (Prionyx thomae). Wasps of this family are predators; the female paralyses the prey with her sting and drags it back to the nest where she lays an egg. The larva hatches and feeds on the paralysed prey. Photographed by the USGS Bee Inventory and Monitoring Lab: an organisation dedicated to identifying, cataloguing and monitoring bees and other insect species.
