Found this insect-in-a-plastic-block thing in a new just opened shop on my way to grocery store yesterday (just 2 euros!) and I’ve been wondering since what is it.
It kind of looks like a some sort of wasp but not any sort I’ve seen before. Finnish wasps are smaller. (Also I checked all the others of its kind in the store, and one of them had a half centimeter long stinger! Huge! It had its abdomen pretty squished, though, so I picked this one instead.)
Awesome reference material, though! (Also it’s not as dark in real life as my camera is pretending it to be.)
So, can anyone tell me what on Earth did I just buy?
