Default The end of a saga

A story that started in 2008 with a shot of a mating bundle of chalcid wasps and ended this year with a shot of the wasp ovipositing into an aquilegia seed pod.

Small flies mating on aquilegia taken in 2007


Small fly ovipositing on aquilegia 2014. I also had a shot of the chalcid wasps which a flickr expert told me were host and parasitoid. The fly is Phytomyza krygeri and the chalcid wasp Seladerma simplex


At last this year a shot of the chalcid wasp ovipositing into the developing seed pod of aquilegia.
