Ichneumonid wasp, male (Spilopteron vicinum)

Cumberland Forest

A brightly coloured wasp, this one found on wild parsnip.

Thanks to Tom Murray for the ID of this beautiful creature. Tom's galleries, as I have mentioned before, are a fantastic resource for help with ID of insects.

It certainly is a graceful looking wasp, in a beautiful composition, but one I'd rather keep at a distance. V.

The flowers really add to the picture of the wasp. BTW it's a male Spilopteron vicinum.
