Ichneumon Wasp

I think this is one of the species of Ichneumon wasps of Ohio. There are many of them and I didn’t want to make this guy mad.

Whatever he is (I think it’s a he because females usually have visible stinger-like organs for eggs), he’s more colorful than I first thought. You can see the spurs on his joints (I wish I could find more information about that). All the camera work started to bug him so I didn’t get shots I might have from a ladybug.
