Wasp feeding (on fungus?) on a Napier grass leaf. Length: c. 4.6 mm.

Unlike most hymenoptera, this individual was really chilled - it remained feeding at the same patch for over 30 minutes! Advances by larger insects that showed an interest in its patch were dismissed by merely raising the nearest rear leg and waving it at the intruder (all retreated rapidly, rather than take on the spine at the end of the tibia)!

Friendly Neighbors


This was an interesting interaction and I think the Reptile might slightly benefit from this interaction. Let me explain. So we were in Kruger Park and as we were driving we saw them and drove past. We then reversed back and the mongoose was a bit nervous and made a quick movement (it looked like he was not sure if he should run away or see what happens). Now the interesting part is that the quick movement of the mongoose triggered the reptile to run into the old termite mound. Thus I think the quick movement from the mongoose might be used as an alarm for the reptile.
