This mostly red and yellow thread-waisted wasp is very similar to my las spotting but different colors and it desn't have the sting in the tail.
Thank you Forest Dragon for the ID.
Check Family Ichneumonidae. This one is a male. Only females have the long appendage off of the abdomen. It is not a stinger. It is actually what they use to bore into wood and lay their eggs.
