    The Sound of a Dying Bug (video and audio!)

    Guys were out on our deck today putting in a new door, and a box fell on my pitcher plants, putting a little break in one of the pitchers, but I'm not too upset over that. The point of this post is....

    When I was over moving my planter into the sun, I heard a noise. A crying noise, almost. It took me a while to figure out where it was coming from, after looking in my purple pitchers, and in my bigger red pitchers. I thought maybe there was a bird's nest or something under the deck. Then when inspecting my smaller red pitchers, I felt it vibrate along with the noise, and I jumped. I tried looking in the pitcher, but it was way down in. I figure maybe it's a wasp, but I can't be sure.

    And now for your hearing pleasure, the video.

    I hear this to. It is fun to find which trap caught the insect by gently flicking it, thus making the insect make the sound again. Less of a flick, more like a tap tap.

    Its a goat wasp. I surfed to the edge of the internet one night and saw something similar along the way. There's a donkey at the end, not a goat.

    I never had this pleasure before. This is the second evidence that a plant caught a bug on its own without my help. Two days ago, I spotted a closed VFT with "daddy long leg" legs sticking out. Even though it'll most likely kill the trap, I'm still kind of glad it caught it. Other times, I see closed traps, but then I look later and it was peat or something in it.

    I also didn't feel as bad about taking a video of this because I didn't plant the bug there. All I did was document it, PBS-style.
