A Chalcidoid Wasp, genus Schizaspidia spotted at Kranji Marshes, Singapore, on 3 Jan 2022. It was only about 2-3mm in size, and I had to stay really still as I took these hand-held shots. But I think it was worth it. :-)

@sohkamyung I had never seen something like that before. Very strange but also very nice ! Thanks for sharing this πŸ˜ƒ

@botaflo Thanks. πŸ™‚

That family of wasps are parasitoids of insect eggs and larvae. Since insect eggs and larvae are tiny, these wasps have to be tiny too.

They are probably quite common, but just hard to spot.

@mcleu Thanks. πŸ™‚ It wasn't easy, though: I had more out-of-focus shots than good ones.

@bobw Thanks. πŸ™‚ I've added you as a follower, as you requested.

@sohkamyung I have tried to follow you I’m new to this mastodon thing hope you allow my mfollow
