June 13, 2011 - Carnage on the Kale

Yesterday I managed to catch quite a spectacle out in our organic garden.  Below we’ve got pictures of a wasp consuming a caterpillar.  I noticed this menacing looking wasp hovering over our kale and as soon as I spotted him he seemed to have spotted his lunch.  Camera in hand, I saw this guy munch down on this caterpillar and before long fly away with the poor fella in his mouth.  Vicious!
