Warmer days bring out more insects.
This is some kind of parasitic wasp (Ichneumon) that lay eggs in other insects. Their larvae feeds on the insect until it dies. This can be very useful as a biological pest control instead of using toxic pesticides.
I have tried to identify the species, but there are estimated to be over 80,000 of them so it is hard. Hope some of my readers can help me out with the ID. 🙂
Or it might be some kind of alien overlord?
