Many flying insects were active here on this day. The weather was very hot (84º F) and very humid for this time of year.
This wasp repeatedly landed on me, as, to my surprise did a big old carpenter bee.
The Ichneumonoidea are insects classified in the hymenopteran suborder Apocrita. The superfamily is made up of the ichneumon wasps (sometimes inaccurately called "ichneumon flies"); family Ichneumonidae and the braconids (family Braconidae). Like other parasitic wasps, they were long placed in the "Parasitica", variously considered as an infraorder or an unranked clade, but actually not a monophyletic group.
