Comments & ID Thoughts

Araneus diadematus with kleptoparasitic wasp as prey. That's my girl! There was an Ichneumon Wasp that was lurking around under her web. It's a rough ID, there are up to 100,000 species in Ichneumonidae. I have photos of it also. According to Bugguide, it may be the largest animal family. She snacked on it for several days.
