(no subject)

Just something neat my friend showed me.



And Ichneumons wasp, also known as a stump stabber. She lays her eggs via a long tube (ovipositor) she stabs into the bark of a tree.
Something I'm curious about, what is the bubble that forms right before she removes the ovipositor?

(The sound is the camera, by the way)
