A member of the Ichneumonidea family of insects. Netelia Sp (Orange Caterpillar Parasite)I do believe.

A type of wasp whose larvae are parasites on other little invertebrates,. The adults lay eggs into the host, such as a caterpillar. When the eggs hatch into larvae, they feed on the host, then eventually turn into a wasp and fly off and do it all over again.
