Yellow fluff & insect

Observed: 6th October 2011 By: George Hounsome
Yellow fluff 20111006 (2.1)

Ball of yellow fluff on a rush stem in grassland. Insect present, possibly emerged from fluff. I've subsequently seen similar balls, also on rush stems, in Epping Forest

    Likely ID
    A parasitic wasp.
    Confidence: It's likely to be this, but I can't be certain.
