Ichneumon wasp

Look what we found on the window this evening! According to our I-spy book of things that make you go 'eeuuughhh', it's an Ichneumon wasp (a type of parasitic wasp). It was a strange looking thing, with a tiny waist (like a thread) holding on a great big body. It sat quite happily in a bug pot, having a wash and brush up, cleaning it's face and antennae. I let it go down the garden.
