Wasp carrying larva 2

Wasp carrying larva 2
The wasps extracted the remaining larvae from the ruined nest, dragged them laboriously above ground and then attempted to fly away with them, presumably to a new nest. Mostly, they succeeded in achieving lift-off, but this wasp actually failed, and eventually abandoned the larva.
