Above my kitchen sink.
You might wonder what that insect is.  I certainly did when it appeared in my kitchen this evening.  It is such a beautiful night afternasty humidity all week that we opened the back door to let the breeze in.  And apparently the icheumonoidea.  The insect with a name as long as its tail.  That, by the way, does not sting humans, but is used to insert its eggs into another living insect.  Lovely.  I have never seen anything like it, and really hope that it was the last I will ever see.

I zoomed in.  That long line is its tail.
And....dead in the kitchen sink after being wacked by my flip flop and sprayed by Method counter spray.  It kind of made me wish for toxic chemicals.
