When you live in the most bio-diverse site in the world outside of one island of the Hawaiian islands, you have to expect all the drama of nature to be played out. Here’s a yellow-jacket eating the heart out of what would have been, presumably, a gorgeous butterfly.
This guy is playing dead on the altar covering. Otherwise, he’s about 2 1/2 inches across running about. I put him in a bottle and let him go at the hermitage.
