Description

I was walking along 22nd St when all of a sudden there was a very loud buzzing sound, and these two insects hit the hood of a parked car with a thunk. The wasp was nearly the size of my index finger and maneuvered its prey across the hood of the car, stinging it repeatedly. It flew over to the wrought iron trim around a street tree, where it appeared to secure its grip on the cicada, hanging from the metal by one leg. Then it labored over to the tree trunk, and very quickly using its wings and its legs, scaled the tree trunk to a height of 8-10 meters. From there it launched itself into the air and flew west up the street, gaining elevation until it cleared the roof of a four-story brownstone and disappeared!

Tagging a few of you who will appreciate: @susanhewitt, @wayne_fidler, @susanna_h @jonathan142 @dan_johnson @willc-t

Ticking songs up in the trees at Hudson River Park. This recording has one close-by individual and then two songs from a more distant individual. I did run a basic noise-reduction filter to try to cut the HVAC/generator/traffic noise that's so pervasive in Manhattan.
