Well, I'm fairly certain that's what it is - it certainly looks like it

Ichneumon wasp

Did you see them on Springwatch?

Taking caterpillars into underground tunnels and laying an egg in them  for their offspring to feed off.  Nature's amazing!  Who needs sprays to kill bugs?  

There's something out there to get all of them if we look after Nature.

The exception that proves the rule is of course the Lily Beetle, but it's our fault it has no predators here - we introduced it, even if unintentionally 

Besides, I'm a predator of Lily Beetles

Just a thought - if you've not known it was a delphinium, and consequently you haven't been surrounding it with eggshells, coffee grounds and grit and inspecting it half hourly, what do your slugs, snails and delphinium moths think they're up to???  Slackers the lot of 'em!!!

Doesn't just look like a delphinium - I will bet money on the fact that it is a delphinium

Unhappy Morello Cherry Tree

If you look at cherry trees in the south of France, in hot sunny weather they droop their leaves - it reduces the surface area exposed to the sun so they don't lose so much water due to transpiration in the heat.
