At least that's what I have narrowed it down to.
Marvellous green eyes, this is likely to be Ophion luteus, a type of ichneumon wasp. It has a red or orange body, antennae and legs. The wings are clear with black veins. The abdomen is arched giving it a somewhat aggressive appearance. Ophions usually lay their eggs inside the body of caterpillars through a hair-like ovipositor. They have also been known to use this ovipositor in a defensive way when they feel threatened. The 'sting' of Ophion can cause some discomfort, so it's possible that the insect injects some irritant.
