    I see the pic and I say, "No, that looks like an Ichneumon but with a short ovipositor." And so I search "ophion wasp" and what's it's common name? "Short-tailed Ichneumon." I guess an ovipositor looks like a tail, haha. Yeah, but I'm without a doubt that's what it is, though.

    I had a husky that used to catch the, uh, "long-tailed" ones and eat them. No joke.
