A Small Gift

I have never seen one of these insects before. Along with some dead dragonflies (I use the wings in my artwork), this was sent to me. What a surprise. After a bit of research I discovered what it was - a Horntail wasp. I love insects; perfect little machines with glorious coloring. My sketch doesn't do it justice. I also love learning something new. Win Win!

  1. And here I thought only biologists mailed insects to each other! ha ha

  2. So funny. All my friends and family send them to me. It surprises a lot of people that venture into my freezer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
