At picnic area of Big Meadow Lodge (near camping area & amphitheater).
also Red Milkweed Bug larvae which I will crop and post alone
on trail just before the summit of Stony Man Trail, a wasp (unsure which but possibly a bald faced hornet?) was taking the wings off one by one, and then flew away with the body!
let me know if you know the wasp, as I noted I thought it might be a bald faced hornet.
not the best pic so can only get to the genus
a little bit beat up
female. Possibly Rose Hip Fly (Rhagoletis basiola)
100+ over the course of 4 hours (conservative estimate)
parent and fledgling
