Your images are both gorgeous and perfect for attempting an identification: dorsal and ventral views. We must also confess that we identified your Braconid Wasp early this morning, but the time clock began ringing. Your pretty female, as evidenced by her lengthy ovipositor, looks to us like this member of the genus Bracon that is pictured on BugGuide.
Hi Daniel Thank You Very Much!!! for the compliment and for your quick response and identification. Have a Great Day! Brent
