Death on the Patio

Death on the Patio
From the living room I saw a tussle going on. By the time I got out there with macro kit the fly was dead and being devoured by this common wasp.

Many thanks. Minimum focus, which for the 100 mm macro is 0.3 metres. I laid flat on the patio and got the lens as close as I could. The wasp was too busy munching to care!

Hard for me to make out what's going on here, but a great title and description. :)

Thanks Steve. At the risk of being gruesome again the wasp has killed the fly and has just sunk its jaws into the fly's abdomen.
