Doug, I love this picture! I am a master gardener in Hampton VA. I am currently working on a adult/immature insect matching game using all beneficial insects. I'm trying to use mostly my own photos but this is one I don't have and it shows scale once you know what the green is. This picture would be perfect. I have completed one section with Carolina mantid, Lacewing and Florida Predatory stink bug. This board features Syrphid fly, Lady beetle and Braconid wasp/Cotesia congregata. You photo would only be used for educational purposes. Thank you for considering.

I can't find the words...
...to tell you how awesome I think these photos are! Really, this is some seriously nice work. Thanks for submitting these to the guide.

Wow, nice shot!
I hope one of our wasp experts can make the ID - this will be a great addition to the guide.
