Macro photo of Ichneumon wasp
This freaky creature is a sort of Ichneumon wasp that lay eggs into other insects. Their larvae live as a parasite of other insects.

As I have said before, macro photography is so much fun and a real challenge when you try to capture moving insects.
I believe the ant is some kind of wood ant (Formica rufa), but I have no idea what species the spider is.

I bet some of my readers have the knowledge. Feel free to write a comment with the information about species as I always love to learn new stuff about the nature.
