La Avispa, La Araña y Batman

Posted by admin on November 9th, 2009 filed in batman, language, travel, video

While walking back from a new picnic area I found on Cerro San Cristobal, we came across a wasp dragging a dead tarantula across the path.

A friend of a friend says the wasp will lay its eggs in the tarantula so the kiddies have something to eat when they hatch.  Creepy … and awesome.

And here’s a moving picture!:

After taking a bunch of pictures and the one video I turned to leave, then remembered I had Batman in my pocket.  Hmmmm…

Carefully, I knelt down to place Batman at a safe distance:

But the wasp was climbing a slight incline and suddenly lost its footing, tumbling down to Batman’s exact level.  It changed its course which happened to lead RIGHT ACROSS BATMAN:

S1051428

S1051429

(No superheroes were harmed in the making of this post.  The tarantula, however, is very much dead.)

Update:  Actually it’s not dead.  A friend pointed out that this is a Tarantula Hawk Wasp and that the tarantula is just paralyzed.  Apparently it eventually gets eaten alive… yikes.  (Thanks Fosphor for the info!)

    Good thing the Wasp could not hurt the “crime fighter”, because he is already paralyzed… HaHa… But maybe if he were stung.., he may have woken up..? Of course, then he would have thwarted that premeditated murder in progress… LOL… But maybe just his presence alone was enough for the wasp to reconsider what he was doing…
