Braconid Wasps

About 5 days after we brought our parasitized tomato hornworm inside, Marianna noticed that the wasps had emerged from their cocoons. We took them outside to be set free.
Not a great picture, but you can see the caterpillar at the bottom. It was still alive!The wasps were tiny.
Suburban nature study . . . gotta love it. :-)
