Weird request...

Hey guys,
For Geoff's summer biology project, he has been taking photos of random bugs, wildlife, etc.  One of the bugs we've come across is this one:

What the heck is this?  We need to be able to identify it exactly.  It looks like some kind of wasp, though it was the size of my palm.  So if any of you would like to figure this one out for us, we'd appreciate it!!

Well, the body length and sets of wings would lead me to say "Dragon Fly" but dragon flies don't have all the tail stuff this picture has.

It is a Giant Ichneumon Wasp (M. macrurus).
