The Hairy Bee Wolf

By annettep38  
Many thanks for your ongoing support. I am awfully sorry, I am neglecting you pictures a bit at the moment it is not that I don't want to, but here at home my internet connection is dead slow and at work I just can't fit it in at the moment.

Here is the result of today's lunch break, a lot easier with a bit of sun. One of five nice critters I found today. His name is Trichodes alvearius, in dutch it is the behaarde bijenwolf which is what the title says. The larvae feed of bees and wasps, adults live on pollen and small insects.
