My new friend

My new friend is this little wasp. I found this little creature today morning in my shoe. He - I guess it's a he, but who knows - was holding on strongly but I saw him before I would have put my shoe on so I grabbed my key and plunked him away... I guess he was very cold, he didn't even try to bite me and couldn't either fly away. He just fell onto the ground.

When I came back from breakfast he was still lying there where he fell. I didn't want him to be trampled on so I took a leaf and with it I could take him to an other place where he could be safe.

Isn't he beautiful?

Does anybody know how long a wasp lives? Do they die when the weather turns colder? Or can they overwinter in the dead fallen leaves?
