Thanks very much for your help with this one.

Thanks,
Very much appreciated!

 
anytime!
i think someone (who is better than me with parasitic wasps -- which is not hard) will eventually push the ID further, the guy looks quite special

 
wasp
Thanks...I think you are being overly modest.
As for myself, I don't sometimes don't know the basics, ie: can't always tell a bee and from a wasp. LOL

Do you think he is best left where he is to be noticed?

 
relax, bees are technically wasps [see taxonomy tree],
...if it's any consolation :) On the other hand, some tenthredinid sawflies [who aren't wasps] may look amazingly ichneumonish from above. I don't know where's the best place for your post; leaving it under ID requests for a while makes sense though
