Wasp menage-a-trois

The battle of the sexes has been taken to extreme in many insects. Males and females engage in all sorts of strategies and schemes to manipulate the opposite sex in the insect world. Sometimes females have to fend off amourous males. This is what I found a couple of mornings ago when I noticed a female wasp being mobbed by two males. They both hung on to her back trying to mate with her even though she didn’t want to mate with either of them!More soon!wasp_trio-lr1.jpgwasp_trio-lr2.jpg
