Wasp attacks and mutilates bee
This video shows a wasp attacking and mutilating a bee. The wasp is deliberately cutting into the bee to separate its abdomen from it’s upper body. when it succeeds it carries off the bee’s abdomen. I spotted this happening by chance when I was going to my garage and ran for the video camera. I think this is most unusual behaviour but I have seen other similar videos on the Internet. Wasps also attack other insects. I was out walking a few days ago when, in a place shaded by trees but with the sun shining through a gap onto some leaves something caught my eye. For some reason the several leaves lit up by the sun were attracting flies, but also there was a wasp which was trying its best to catch them. I stood and watched for a little while but the flies were just a bit too quick for it.
