[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
A female ichneumon wasp (sub family pimplinae) is laying her eggs deep inside the nest of a solitary bee.
The black "tail" is really a protective sheath for the real oviscapt, and it does not participate in the drilling operation, as is obvious in this picture.
