The Jewel in the Tomb!

 You might remember this tiny little Jewel spider photo that I posted  a few weeks ago, well there is one less of these in the world after this rather amazing looking wasp decided to paralyse one of the spiders and seal it up in her mud chamber for her larva to eat.
                                                Here she is packing the spider into it's tomb.
                           She's off to get another load of wet mud to seal up the entrance.
                                         All sealed up and ready to make another chamber.
                                                    Working hard on the second 'tomb'.
                                         What an amazing feat of engineering and precision.
