Any ideas of what this may be? I have noticed a lot of them all of sudden and have not seen these before. They fly.
Predatory wasp of some sort, perhaps an ichneumon.
Doubt that. Is it possible to post a slightly larger image?
Sorry, but I can't figure out how to post a new or bigger picture to this thread
If not an ichneumon, then a braconid. Beneficial.
I'm with Dan - it's a braconid (or maybe ichneumon). There are many, many similar looking braconids. They are your friend... unless you're an aphid or a caterpillar.
If you do a google-images search on "braconid wasp" you can see the havoc they wreak on caterpillars. Positively gory!
Great. Thanks for the info. That is a relief.
