Hi! This is about parasitic wasps, some of the coolest wasps. They're kind of like H.R. Giger's Alien (you know, like the one that burst out of John Hurt's chest in 1979). You may not like wasps, but they're pretty fascinating nonetheless. I learned some interesting things about parasitoid venoms and mating strategies. Have a read, or maybe just check out the pictures.

Thank you for beautiful photos and lots of info. I hope to find some of them in my area this season. “Female snakefly with ovipositor, Raphidioptera” is just gorgeous. My other favorite is “Galls on the underside of Quercus garryana leaves”. I’m sure I’ll flip over lots of oak leaves this summer.:)
