Stigmus pendulus♂︎

Last update: 30 May 2024


LOCATION: Krimpen aan den IJssel, garden


A small digger wasp crawled around on a stone underneath the bee hotels, that from a distance seemed not be able to fly. The male Stigmus pendulus[1] indeed could not lift off due to a deformed righter forewing, in which especially the tip was severely crumpled.

I caught him for a photo session and the next time he passed away.
