Wasp and Caterpillar action

This video clip shows a Thread-waisted Wasp working furiously to cover up and fill in a hole to its nest where it has just deposited a big Speckled Green Fruitworm Moth-caterpillar for food for whenever the eggs in the nest hatch and then the new larvae will eat it.

Nature is not for the squeamish is it? I am glad you showed the wasp burying rather than the larvae eating the caterpillar. Thanks for sharing.
