Ichneumon Wasps

Ichneumon Wasps

There are lots of these tiny beneficial wasps on my rose leaves.
It was hard to get a photo because as soon as I got
my camera close to them they flew away.

It's amazing what you find in the garden
if you don't use any pesticides or herbicides.
Wait a minute, is that a tiny caterpillar on the rose bud?
Apparently the wasps have a host insect where they lay their eggs.
Not sure what the host insect will be for these wasps.
We shall see.
