Dear BrowMaster,
This is a very unusual angle on a Giant Ichneumon,
Megarhyssa atrata, a species that parasitizes wood boring larvae of the Pigeon Horntail.

Location: Wilmington, Massachusetts

  1. What luck! The bugs I saw today, and came to look up, were the last ones posted on your site! The Giant Ichneumon are pretty impressive to see IRL!
