I always thought the tarantula hawk had a very depressingly Sisyphean existence: go, fly around, find a tarantula, kill eat, eat it, rest, repeat. I was told it has to find and kill at least one tarantula a day, but I’m not sure I believe this. I had no idea it was a sort of wasp, and I’m glad I didn’t. Flying, they look a bit like hummingbirds — not at all scary, and quite beautiful, with the buzzing orange wings and the black body.

I think insects generally do have rather limited lifestyles.

We don’t have anything like them here. Mind you, we don’t have any tarantulae either.
