was hoping that you might be able to tell us what type of bug this is , it was photographed this summer in Atlin BC Canada and so far we have not been able to find anyone up here that can make an identification.

Hi John and Tracy,
What a great photo of a female Horntail Wood Wasp, Urocerus gigas flavicornis. She lays eggs in dead and dying trees with that fierce looking ovipositor.
