This is my first post here!
Last summer, I spotted a dozen wasps on a bunch in the lawn. During observation, a hornet was overflight us, and wasps escaped away, revealing a bat carcass. Hornet (Vespa crabro) landed near, nervously made three circles around the carcass, and start to bite off a piece of meat. Everything lasted for about 20 seconds, before he gone with 3mm wide piece of flesh, and I succeed to take a few snapshots. This is the most successful one, but still, a part of the legs was left outside the frame.

Nice 'action' shot.

It's not that often we see insects doing something as unusual as eating a bat, so well done Very Happy

Thanks for your comments, friends ...
There is another one, taken last summer. The wasp (Vespula germanica) eat a piece of dried remains of the earthworm (Lumbricus terrestris).
