Michael Hampson: Bugs and stuff
A female giant ichneumon wasp (Megarhyssa macrurus) withdrawing her ovipositor from a hole in a dead tree.  She laid an egg near the larva of a pigeon tremex (a wood-boring wasp); after it hatches, it will feed on the tremex, ultimately killing it before emerging from the tree next summer as an adult.
