Tarantula Hawk

Body of a giant wasp, wings of a harlot cockroach.
Part of me said "RUN", but the photographer inside said "Get closer..."







Uh-oh... he spotted me.


RUN!

  1. i was expecting to see an actual hawk. fascinating! when i googled it, they get to be like 4 inches!!

    stunning photos and i have to say i'm quite proud of you for getting so close considering their sting is supposed to twice a painful as a regular wasp!
