Insect and Whitegoods: getting close to an ichneumon fly

P1267112 collage

I just read that an ichneumon fly is actually not a fly, but a parasitic wasp, so my title is already incorrect. And, truthfully, I’m not actually certain this is an ichneumon wasp, but it’s what I’ve known as one. Can anyone set me straight?

These shots were taken indoors in low light, while the creature cavorted on a fridge, and the focus isn’t as sharp as I’d have liked.
