    Ichneumonidae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Its a type of wasp, sometimes called a scorpion wasp. They are parasites, laying eggs inside other insects. Very cool.

    I don't remember seeing one before...and I'm not quite as young as I used to be. It is wicked cool looking. Thanks for the link.

    I'm glad its the size it is. That tiny, and I still was glad is was just laying there.
