Black wasp with segmented antennae and clear brown wings. It was very docile and relaxed it seemed, and didn't move too much. Apparently this is an odd one and by the looks of it not very common as there are few photos from this subfamily on the guide.

On the leaf of a vine growing up a fence in a pasture. This neighborhood has a lot of pasture, with many pine and oak trees and not many plants in the understory.
