    There's a good pdf on British Ichneumonid wasps - https://quelestcetanimal-lagalerie.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/british-ichneumonid-wasps-id-guide.pdf

    Insect ID solitary wasp? (Cotswolds, UK)

    They're not a group of insects I look at (as I tend to pick groups where you have a greater % chance of ID from photos). I occasionally get a picture of one but never try to ID it. I expect you need to collect specimens in order to ID them but I'm sure someone else here can confirm.

    Insect ID solitary wasp? (Cotswolds, UK)

    There's nothing wrong with your photo it's just that there are so many similar looking and highly variable (in looks and size) species that ID from photos is often impossible. There are about 2500 species in the UK.
