I've got a soft spot for this subfamily- great first attempt at the natural look. I can entirely sympathise with the difficulty of mounting parasitic wasps. They're my group of passion and I've had a hideous time trying to get them in position! Still as yet to get a natural looking one :)

Nice effort :) if you want to make it look more alive, the wings would be naturally flat along the back. Rubbish for identification purposes however :)
In case you weren't aware, the wasp is a braconid of the subfamily Cheloninae, and probably Chelonus but there are other genera.

Some larval stages have six legs oddly! If that information is of any help anyway :)

Thank you very much, it was my second attempt at darkfield. I'll maybe post my first attempt at some point- it was a big jump! :)

An Ichneumonid, but not sure what. Maybe some Banchine or Pimpline :smt102

It's an Ichneumonid I think. Maybe subfamily Ichneumoninae but not sure.

Nice :)
It's Ectemnius I think, or close it, but I think Ectemnius is the one.
