Nightmare fuel:

[…] We get paper wasps everywhere, but the general population has learnt to live with them, along with the hundreds of other harmful beasties poised to strike at any time.

But a much rarer site over here is one of those spider hunting wasps. They'd probably be the most physically imposing insect I've seen, on top of the loud droning noise of their flight. You can feel the wind from their wings from easily 2 feet away.

They are not stop action, too, always looking for spiders. I believe our local one hunts for ground dwelling wolf spiders. Once I saw one fly by carrying an absolutely fuck-off big wolf spider, I had to do a triple take. A fuck-off big, droning insect carrying a fuck-off big spider with the wind of its wings beating against my face. Quite a memorable experience.

ZooBorns. So much cuteness it hurts. (Some are less cute, but still interesting.)
