Imagine that after it punches it's way through your chest it makes you tuck it in and cook it dinner. That's what this wasp actually does!

Cotesia golmerata, arguably the most interesting animal in all of nature. I (TC camera op James) have been trying to film this for the last three years. This was my white whale. Hope you enjoy it!
