#tarantula vs #tarantulahawk, Part II
.
I've never seen this before: they're fighting, then the tarantula gets on top of the wasp and presumably bites it, because the wasp staggers away in a hurry with a blob of white on its head...

Tarantula Hawk. Used an oldschool wire mouse to color this one. Can't afford a fancy Wacom tablet.
I've been going through a bit of a financial hardship lately. But I'm not going to let that stop me from my art. My goal is to see all my visions all the way through to completion. So this is the first of many finished.  #SundaySketch #Visions #goals #finish #illustration #illustrator #drawing #tarantulahawk #sketch #artoftheday #instalike #instalikes #igart #ink #inking #pen #detailedart #linedetail #beauty #newartist #drawings #pen #ff #sketchbox @inkfeature @artnimals_ @academic_artworks

Caught this pretty girl on my hike. She has some orange on her antennae, so she should be Pepsis mildei. I've caught them before in the same area but they had bright orange on much of their antennae instead of the barely visible orange on the tips of this female's antennae. #pepsismildei #tarantulahawk

Here's a video we took last year while checking trail cams.  I've only seen this two times in person. My two oldest kids were pretty amazed. #predatormeetspredator #tarantula #tarantulahawk #killorbekilled #mothernature #desertlife #shouldhavejuked #newmexicowildlife #entomology #crosscountryguideservice

Found this little guy taking his prey home on the trail today. #tarantulahawk 
Two years ago when I first saw this creature flying around, I thought it was a fairy. ✨ I was intrigued by its orange wings, long legs and blue body, but I never saw it land. That was until grandma planted a medicinal plant in her garden that attracted a huge diversity of flower-feeders. Humming birds, June bugs, honeybees, yellow jackets, spiders, flies, and this blue wasp known as the tarantula hawk. Apparently, their sting is so painful that it scales number 2 on the insect sting pain index. It's the same sting that permanently paralyzes an adult tarantula! 💀 😱Nevertheless, he's a beauty. 🌸✨ #tarantulahawk#wasp#coyotepeterson#nature#insects#bugs#flyinginsects#insectsofig#fairy#fairies#garden

This here is a tarantula hawk, a frighteningly large spider wasp. Really. It's about the size of a big kid's fist. The female lays its egg in a tarantula that it has paralyzed with its sting. Entomologist Justin Schmidt, whose Sting Pain Index ranks the painfulness of various "bug bites" puts the tarantula hawk's sting second only to the bullet ant's. The apparently masochistic Schmidt, who lets insects sting him for science, describes the pain of the tarantula hawk's sting as "blinding, fierce and shockingly electric ... A bolt out of the heavens. Lie down and scream." Blessedly, the pain dissipates in five minutes. With the bullet ant, it takes five hours!

The tarantula hawk is just one of the many insect specimens featured in the "Bugged" issue of #californiamag, courtesy of UC Berkeley's Essig Museum of Entomology.

Uncomfortably fascinated is what I felt taking this photo. Originally I had planned to take a photo of flowering Beebalms but then five or six Tarantula Hawks showed up. They really had no interest in me but that didn't keep me from maintaining a respectable distance.

Today's find #tarantulahawk (unfortunately I couldn't get a clearer picture because it was captured in a plastic container) Also a good idea to avoid these, as they have the most painful sting of any insect #level4 #Schmidtstingpainindex

I didn't know tarantula hawks were pollinators, but this one was really getting after the blooms on this chaste tree. #wildlife #gardening #wasp #tarantulahawk
I always make poisonous friends.  Got followed around by a Tarantula Hawk today.  A tarantula hawk is a spider wasp that hunts tarantulas. Tarantula hawks belong to any of the many species in the genera NOPEsis and HemiNOPEsis, in the family NOPEilidae (spider wasps). They have the second most painful sting known to man.  #tarantulahawk #mojavedesert #workhazards

"Guys, this is a tarantula hawk. Oh my gosh. You gotta put that on your Instagram...are you gonna do it?" Safe to say we were pretty excited to run into #2/3 on the insect pain index (depends on who you ask lol).

Another bug, the Tarantula Hawk one very big wasp. It actually hunts down Tarantula and paralysed them with its 1/4" stinger. Josie found this one and had been holding it.
From Wikipedia "the sting — particularly that of P. grossa — is among the most painful of all insects, though the intense pain only lasts about five minutes.[8] One researcher described the pain as "…immediate, excruciating, unrelenting pain that simply shuts down one's ability to do anything, except scream. Mental discipline simply does not work in these situations."

Tarantula Hawk. This globe is about 4 1/2 inches in diameter. Big wasp. Most painful sting in the Western Hemisphere. From Mojave Desert.

It has been busy in the milkweed...
Some small bee creature is flying into the upper left hand corner, while a tarantula hawk wasp (Pepsis grossa, probably) feeds on the flower cluster.  Asclepias subulata certainly attracts a variety of wasps, and apparently (according to Wikipedia) the tarantula hawks are a major pollinator for milkweed here. 
Perhaps it's best I can't show you just how big this wasp is; probably some two inches or so (5 cm). I admit to being a bit nervous as I took my photos...😉 But I can't help being fascinated by these creatures. 
I love those big, curling antennae.

New Bird Alert. This is a Hawk. A Tarantula Hawk. Not your typical bird of prey, I know, but it's almost as large and I have mixed emotions about its existence.  It's a flying nightmare with only the most painful sting of any and all creatures that can sting, so there's that, buuuuuuut, it kills big hairy spiders, specifically tarantulas, so there is about .005% of me that doesn't want to annihilate him with a flamethrower. It doesn't actually kill the tarantulas right away, it paralyzes them, lays their eggs in or on them so that when they babies hatch, their first meal is already waiting. Gotta give em some life credits for that I guess... #tarantulahawk #flyingnightmare #worststingever #pleasedontkillme #youscareme #but #thankyouforwhatyoudo #hiking #adventure #liveoutdoors #annadel #NorCal #sonomacounty #nofilter #canon #canon_photos #canonpointandshoot #findyourpeace #stopandsmellthemonsterkiller #stopandsmelleverything

I was chasing that #tarantulahawk for quite some time and finally got the shot 📸 -Taranantula hawk's get their name because, yup you guessed it.....they hunt tarantulas. Growing up to 2 inches they have a fierce sting that would bring any man to his knees. The female tarantula hawk wasp stings and paralyzes a tarantula, then drags the prey to a specially prepared nest, where a single egg is laid on the spider's abdomen. When the wasp larva hatches, it creates a small hole in the spider's abdomen, then enters and feeds voraciously, avoiding vital organs for as long as possible to keep the spider alive. 😱

I've seen several of these buzzing around my back yard the last few weeks. This here is a tarantula hawk with my thumb as a size reference. They get absolutely gigantic and per Wikipedia "the sting is considered one of the most painful insect stings in the world". I usually leave the wasps and bees alone - but fuck these things, they have huge heads and stare at you plotting and are pretty damn aggressive. A good spray with the hose and stepping on them works a treat.

Been eyeballing this for a couple weeks. Now is the time! #tarantulahawk #wildacrebrewing
#AudubonInsectarium is now home to a small collection of tarantula hawks, a beautiful insect that offers a fascinating study in contradictions. For example, the tarantula hawk technically is a wasp. It's the largest member of the spider wasp family Pompilidae, a family of thousands of species that preys only on spiders. While the name comes, in part, from their primary prey - the much bigger tarantula - the insect does not attack from the air like a “hawk.’’ Instead, it walks up to a tarantula’s resting place, setting the stage for a deadly duel. #TarantulaHawk #NOLA #TGIF

This was on the way up the #CerroNegro volcano, before we went #VolcanoBoarding down it. Nerves were mounting. Shortly after this photo I also had a disoriented #TarantulaHawk wasp land on my back. Second most painful insect sting in the WORLD (bullet ant is #1) The guide nearly jumped off the volcano when he saw it. Thankfully he just flew away off me!!! #closecall #lionkingmoment #linktobloginbio

Thankfully he just flew away off me!!! #closecall  #lionkingmoment  #linktobloginbio  . . . . #bondi2blackrock  #greattourarounddownunder  #centralamerica  #nicaragua  #discovernicaragua  #irishabroad  #flashpacking  #olympusomd  #travelphoto  #instatraveling  #mytravelgram  #travelblogger  #bucketlist  #adventurer  #lp  #theglobalwanderer  #tlpicks  #traveldeeper  #takemebackpacking  #passionpassport  #bdteam  #followforfollowback  #viewfromthetop
