Ichneumon from July 2002.
No interactions present.
Yes, same individual. It was grooming its wings in the second photo so the colours on the abdomen were better exposed.
Ok, Thanks :)
Many thanks for your suggested ID, certainly looks a good possibility.
I do wish someone would do a good book on the Ichneumonidae, I have dozens of unidentified images! :)
