A mystery

Ok, I’m jumping on the guessing-game bandwagon, ’cause it’s fun.
Here’s a snippet of a pic I snapped yesterday. 
I wanna know:
  1. Who is/are the character(s)? 
  2. Where did the story unfold?
  3. What IS the story?
5 points for each 😛

Tell me the story

    Oh my gosh….I have no idea. Anxiously awaiting the answer though!

    This site “bugs” me … but in a good way. Great macro work on your photos. BTW, just had visitors here in Florida from Whithorse in the Yukon.

      Glad I’m bugging you the right way, Robert, and thanks for the compliments on the photos, it means a lot!

      Alllllll the way from Whitehorse? Now THAT’s a long walk! 😛

    I see what looks to be a cerambycid larva head capsule (perhaps a pine sawyer, genus Monochamus, or maybe Rhagium) – but instead of the rest of the beetle larva I see numerous parasitic hymenopteran (ichneumonoid?) cocoons and some frass from the beetle. Looks like the beetle larva was parasitized in its gallery and the parasitoids have all pupated.
