I was photographing butterflies when this insect flew in momentarily and settled on a flower head, one quick photograph and it was gone.
I think it is a wasp but have verer seen it before, please can anyone identify the insect for me.
It's an ichneumon (they parasitise caterpillars etc.). They're a very difficult group to pin down to species but it does look like some of the Ichneumon species on this page -
