Yellow-banded Ichneumon Wasp (Echthromorpha agrestoria) - Male

A male yellow-banded ichneumon wasp. These males would often sit in the middle of leaves with their wings up, I am not sure if there is a reason for this or not. They always had to seek out females, so perhaps they do this just to have a rest?
