Description:

I noticed a caterpillar making a cocoon on a michaelmas daisy plant in my garden. A few days later I saw this insect, (see photo), which appeared to be laying eggs on the outside of the cocoon. The insect stayed there for about a week and hardly moved. Can anyone tell me what the insect is?
