Adult female beewolf (Philanthus triangulum) crashes into the sand with a honey bee (Apis mellifera) in her grasp.

This awesome species of wasp specifically targets honey bees, paralises them, then buries the immobilized victim underground for her young to feed on.

So what’s going on here then? Well, it turns out this particular female Beewolf is hungry!

And why would you go and collect nectar yourself when you can subdue a honey bee that’s been drinking the stuff all day, then just squeeze the liquid meal you seek out of them!

Absolutely blew my mind once I’d learnt that what was happening here.

Simply incredible.
