My oldest nemesis. Been stung soooo many times going to the beaches of the east shore. Still, what a cool animal.

Fragrant fruit found on ground in Honolulu in late November
Mosquito larvae were collected on 11/4 from water inside of a bucket and adults reared into adults approximately two weeks later (suggesting that mosquitoes were collected in late fourth instar). Samples were then frozen and photographed a week later.
About 4 inches long. Saw several of these.
Fascinating to watch this wasp making her "pot." I believe she's ovipositing in this photo.
Here's a short video of her hard at work: https://flic.kr/p/Bro1nR
Two caterpillars found in a potter wasp nest. Are those white things protruding from the caterpillar wasp larva/e?
