Dead wasp came out too early
Today, while leaving school, I found a dead wasp outside one of the buildings. It was really cold at night and I was surprised to see an insect coming out this early in the year (although it was unusually warm yesterday). Poor critter.
So I brought it home and took some photos. It looks like it belongs in the family Pompilidae (Spider Wasps). Unfortunately, I haven't seen any spiders yet this time of the year for it to prey on.
