Wood Wasp

Hi Milos,
This is a Wood Wasp, a group of insects with larvae the bore in wood.  We believe we have correctly identified it as
Sirex juvencus on the Encyclopedia of Life websiteThere is a nice photo that shows the sexual dimorphism since the male and female look very different from one another.
