    Default Nature does what it does...

    So what you see here is the remains of an aphid, it's body attached to a podium created by a braconid wasp. This tiny parasitic wasp finds a target host and deposits an egg inside it. This egg will be dormant until the host is big enough for the larva to hatch and then the wasp larva feeds on the insides of said host.

    Eventually, the parasitic wasp will emerge and fly away and so nature goes on...
