[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another from the back catalouge , this one is a solitory hunting wasp of some sort, the closest I have come was that possibly one that lays its eggs in the nests of solitory bee's but thats all I can tell you about it. This one was on the inside fo one of my shade tunnels at work and that is a very fine nylon woven mesh it is walking across. they never seem to be still so most images are blurred or it is half out of frame by the time the camera decides it is ready to take the shot, one of the down sides of having a compact camera. have a look at the one in the WS for another point of view click here to view.
Hope some body can help with a more definate ident.

Hi Rob, looks like an Ichneumon to me, I can't get close to a species but I think it may (and I stress may) belong to the genus Amblyteles. Nice shot.

Hi Rob,
We can see an unnatural photo with an average composition. I think that it's not worthy to your pictures and the intellectuality of TN.
Cheers Nikola
