Description

I can't say I was expecting my first giant ichneumon to be one that has lost its ovipositor! I wonder if this one got attacked by a bird or something while it was depositing eggs, since it's so vulnerable during that time. Appears to be missing half a wing as well.

34-35mm not counting the remains of the ovipositor
