Rhyssa persuasoria - Parasitic wasp

Some solitary bees have been laying eggs in the holes of some shelving units in the conservatory; they then seal the hole. But this does not protect them from a parasitic wasp from finding them; drilling a hole and laying her own eggs on the developing grubs. Nature can be fascinating to watch.
