The wasp spent several minutes hanging on to the caterpiller, moving up from the tail towards the head before flying off.The victim was walking fast in an effort to get rid of its passenger. I have looked up the superb photographic website (French text)http://aramel.free.fr/INSECTES14ter-3-1.shtml but cannot find an exact match for the wasp.
