As i approached some fallen timber i noticed what i thought were
hawker dragonflies hovering around a large log on the ground.
I then realised that they were large ichneumon flies sometimes
called sabre wasps. I had only seen one of these insects before
and there was one resting on this log. I crept slowly and silently
towards it hoping that it would not fly away and i managed to take
this photograph.of this magnificent insect..
