Hunter and hunted?

I was very pleased to catch an ichneumon wasp (or it might be a braconid) for the first time. I studied it carefully but I can't identify it and the wing veination isn't clear. The body (from head to tail, excluding ovipositor) was about 1 cm. Then I suddenly saw what might be another insect on the far side of the twig to the right. Am I imagining that? Could it be vegetation that resembles an insect? But if it is an insect, what is it and is its proximity to the wasp pure chance or is one hunting the other?

    Alan,

     

    The other one is definitely a bug or beetle, IMO.

    I suspect the two are close just by chance.
