Braconid wasps attacking caterpillar - pumpkin by Lorenzo Rodriguez
Wouldn't Melittia cucurbitae have been more appropriate?
And Happy Halloween to you.
I love this. I'm totally impressed with the fine detail the carver managed to achieve. If I try to do stuff like that, inevitably something rips or slices off.
MrILTA -- I like the idea of the ghoulish little parasitoids hovering around the hapless caterpillar, but I suppose a pumpkin devouring insect would also be ghoulish from the plants' point of view.
Best. Pumpkin. Ever.
No pumpkin ants?
