Me and this tarantula hawk go way back! To last summer that is, when I encountered one up close in Arizona. I have to say, dead insects creeped me out far more than those that were alive, but drawing them really helps!

So I decided to continue practecing with #watercolor and went on and did this #creature,  people seem to call it the #tarantulahawk or #spiderhawk beause of its main food source being... Well, tarantulas. Might create more insects along the way.

Throwback from when hurricane Maria showed me an insect I’ve never seen before. Apparently this is called a blue tarantula hawk wasp. I don’t know much about insects but I liked the colors 😄

I have been trying all week to develop a realistic way to do the wings. This is after about seven tries. Getting there? Inspired by the colors of the tarantula hawk wasp. #wings #tarantulahawk #fairy #originaldesign #creepy #sculpture #airbrush #creature #character

The tarantula hawk (aka pepsis wasp) paralyzes tarantulas and lays a single egg inside them, which when hatches, feeds internally on the spider until the larvae reaches adulthood and it emerges from the spider’s abdomen. Also, they have one of the most painful of all insect stings. Equal parts terrifying, and fascinating, and gross. 😱🕷🐝

Avispa Azul - Pompilocalus sp. - (f. Pompilidae) - Pompilocalus

Have yet to identify the specific specimen, but pretty sure it's a type of Pompilocalus (roig?) of the Pompilidae family.

It has the same beautiful dark metallic blue of the pepsis, who also use strong colors to warn of its powerful sting to anyone who wants to disturb it.

Pepsis Limbata - Tarantula Hawk, Avispa caza tarántulas, Caballito del diablo, Avispon, Pájaro gallo, Pepsis.

I took this photo while the Pepsis was hunting probably for tarantulas, as it was deliriously searching under every rock and hole in the ground on its path. It was huge...easily 5 to 7 cm long.

This wasp is know to have the second most painfully sting in the world, it will not kill you but.....hell outchhh!

This is the time in the year when it need a host to deposit its eggs. It will hunt for tarantulas...use its powerful sting to paralize it....drag it home....and laid a egg on the prey so when it hatch the newborn larvae feed while the host is still alive.

Throwback to Oct 1. The day Sam’s life changed forever. 
I took this photo on a gorgeous day mountain biking in the Sequoia National Forest minutes before Sam was stung/bit by something venomous. 
We never found out exactly what got him, but the reaction was immediate. Blinding pain, partial paralysis, dilated pupils, and shock. 
In that moment I realized how stupid I was to be alone with a 40 lb dog and a mountain bike, miles from the car, with no cell service, no first aid kit, and no rattle snake vaccine onboard. 
The symptoms eventually wore off and Vet suggested it was either a scorpion or a tarantula hawk (google it). Whatever it was, Sam hasn’t been the same since. He’s started to “check out” while standing up and often stumbles. This week we see the heart specialist. The next test in a long string of blood work, stool samples and exams attempting to diagnose his condition. 
Perhaps there’s lasting damage from this day. Perhaps he’s just getting old. Either way, these are the first signs that he won’t live forever and I hate it.

Tive recentemente dois encontros com esta fêmea Pepsis formosa. (Um dia em meu quarto fotos 1a 3 a outra ao escurecer lidando com uma aranha nas demais fotos e vídeo)
Denominada de Tarantula Falcão ou Marimbondo caçador esta vespa da ordem Hymenoptera, subordem Apocrita, superfamília Vespoidea. Pertence à família Pompilidae, subfamília Pepsinae, tribo Pepsini, genero Pepsis. 
A família Pompilidae conta com mais de 250 espécies na América do Sul e ocorre na India, sudeste asiático, Austrália, África e nas Américas. Já o genero Pepsis occorre apenas nas Américas.

Estas vespas são nectarívoros, medindo aproximadamente 5 centímetros sendo as maiores vespas do mundo. Os machos que são menores do que as fêmeas e não são caçadores passando o dia se alimentando em flores e de olho em fêmeas de passagem em período fértil.
As femea captura aranhas, após paralisá-las com sua ferroada,  carrega a presa até um ninho, depositando apenas um ovo em seu abdômen. A aranha servirá para alimentar a larva que será, fêmea caso o ovo é fecundado e macho se não foi.

Mesmo com este tamanho impressionante, não é uma espécie agressiva, a menos que não se sinta ameaçada. Quem já foi picado por uma descreve a sensação como "5 minutos no inferno" os movimentos do corpo param e um consegue apenas gritar. 
A picada da Vespa Caçadora de Tarantulas foi classificada como nível 4 de dor, ou seja a mais dolorida de todas as vespas e a segunda picada mais dolorida do mundo!

Sun never really came out in the Costa Rican rainforest, but that's OK; I was kind of digging the foggy, moody atmosphere. We skipped the beach for a reason, afterall. While hiking we saw volcanoes, sloths, a venomous pit viper, a gigantic wasp carrying a dead tarantula, howler monkeys, coati, hot volcanic rivers, waterfalls, and 3 nice couples from Colorado. Excellent trip! #damnnatureyouscary #volcanarenal #snake! #tarantulahawk #coati #lafortuna #costarica #rainforest #travelbug

Another oc for my storyline! Her name is Taka and she’s based off of a Tarantula Hawk (a type of bug with a super painful sting) She’s a very tough girl with a salty personality, and an oddly intelligent mindset. She also hates when people mention the irony of her name, and will probably punch you straight in the face if you do lmao.

Vamos falar em histórias de terror? 
Uma vespa voa no meio da floresta, procurando por algo. Subitamente, ela para e se dirige à toca de um bicho terrível, que a maioria dos outros insetos evita. Uma tarantula bruscamente se joga em cima dela. A vespa contra-ataca com um movimento rápido de seu abdômen e seu ferrão penetra na rígida armadura da aranha, injetando um veneno paralisante.

Após vencer, ela carrega sua inimiga até um lugar mais seguro, fora do alcance de olhares inoportunos. Contudo, não a devora...
A aranha desperta. Tenta se libertar, mas percebe que está presa numa armadilha feita pela vespa.
Lentamente sente suas forças se esvaírem, como se algo a devorasse por dentro. Depois de algumas semanas insistindo, ela termina chegando a uma morte lenta e dolorosa... Nesse momento, uma nova vespa emerge de dentro da carcaça. Passou as ultimas semanas se alimentando da tarantula viva, até que estivesse pronta pra sair, quando a matou. Por fim, vagueia pela toca, perambulando até encontrar a saída deixada por sua mãe, de onde parte para o mundo, a busca de um novo hospedeiro.

Baseado em fatos reais 😁

So I've been 'battling' these bitches for about a year now. They are giant black wasps with fire colored wings that have the most painful sting in the world. Not exactly something you want around your house, huh?  Yet, these ladies have been constantly trying to move into mine for a while now. I developed a whole new outlook on them however, when I found out that the reason for this powerful sting is to paralyze tarantulas to feed live to their children. They're pretty much just bad-ass moms. 
Despite how much they still freak me out and drive me nuts, they've inspired me enough to pay homage to their bad-assness. So here she is- 
The Tarantula Hawk.

If you're in Costa Rica and happen to pass through Santa Teresa, stop in @artsoulstcr to check her out in person. She'll be up with the rest of the show until January 6th.
