A Black Ichneumon Wasp

An ichneumon wasp (Hymenoptera: Ichneumonidae).  I have no idea of the genus or species.

[Note added 2012-11-18: Possibly a Coelichneumon sp.  See the image just over half-way down this page at Alain Ramel's Les Insectes site.]

Photo taken in Whiteknights Park, Reading University grounds, Reading, UK, on 2009-09-10.
