Thank you so much CLare,
This is a gorgeous photo that illustrates the importance of food plants to perpetuate animal species. The Milkweed Meadow supports amazing ecosystems. The complexity of the web of life surrounding the Tarantula Hawk is astounding since it is so particular about its diet, especially that of the larvae. We once posted this photo of the danger of preying upon a predator. We here at What’s That Bug? have seen a Tarantula Hawk in the Los Angeles River Bed in August several years ago, but never one in Mount Washington.
