Lisa Van Kula Donovan, an amateur entomologist based in Torbanlea, Queensland, captured a potter wasp snaring a caterpillar before stuffing it into its nest in this footage, uploaded on October 13.
“This nest most likely has multiple eggs inside,” Van Kula Donovan told her followers on Instagram.
In a post on October 14, the amateur entomologist can be seen holding another potter wasp and caterpillar in the palm of her hand, though this wasp manages to stuff the caterpillar into its nest with more success.
“I’m not scared it will sting me,” she added. “This species is not aggressive.” Credit: Wannabe Entomologist via Storyful
