There are ...
.. two heads mounted on this pin - one still attached to the body, and a second one on the bottom point, so this image contains parts from 2 separate specimens, possibly from different families. The metasoma on the middle pin is likely from a braconid (probably the body on the top pin).

 
Ahh okay, thank you very much
