At first when I saw this I thought I had a damsel fly in the garden but no its a Gasteruption jaculator which is a type of wasp with a rude sounding name. :grin:

Great shots, if slightly creepy. Kind of looks like the Ichneumon wasps we get around here.

Thanks all, it's a weird one for sure. :)

Thanks David, they are very similar to Ichneumons but not the same family. It uses that long appendage to insert eggs into solitary bee and wasp nests where its larvae feast on the host's grubs. :oops:
