While Boa and I machete’d through 7 km of Thalia today collecting bags filled with nothing, I was stung by a wasp on the lip.  What hurts worse than that, however, is the fact that I haven’t take a single pictures in Costa Rica yet!  I’ve been busy, hot and tired.  Everything seems to take twice as long because the wetland vegetation is 5 times as thick.

So, in honor of the wasp next I destroyed today, here is a wasp found at Jennings’ Woods, with an incredible ovipositor/abdomen.
