Cicada Killer Wasp and Tibicen tibicen

This is the first time I ever did this. I allowed a female cicada killer with her prey (teneral male T. chlormera) to crawl onto my hand. Took tons of footage and still shots, and must admit the adrenalin was rushing through me! I spoke with professor Chuck Holliday before attempting this (cicada killer expert). Probably would not advise doing this, especially if one has an allergy to bee/wasp venom!
