About 8 of them sticking stingers into the trees
This is an Ichneumon Wasp. There are many species of these wasps and it is difficult to identify from just this one photo. The "stinger" is actually a tube for laying eggs. They drill into the wood of trees and find caterpillars in which to lay their eggs.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichneumonoi...
