Tiny Predator

A tiny beneficial wasp who’s name I’m not positive of. I did a search on the internet and came up with –Ichneumon Wasp (Ichneumonidae). She’s about as long as my pinky fingernail or 6mm ( I don’t have long fingernails).
They are harmless to us but deadly to the cabbage worms and aphids that eat my perennials!
To me, the insects are just as interesting as the flowers! 
Go here to see the opposite end of the scale for black wasps in my garden -> Giant Black Wasp
