Nasty little bug identified!

A little over a week ago I posted a few pictures of a flying insect that I could not identify. Well thanks to Daniel at http://whatsthatbug.com/ he identified the flying critter as a Ichneumon, a parasitic wasp.

Sounds pretty nasty but they are actually harmless. My specimen seems to be the Ophion Nigrovarius Provancher. This species is common around light sources on your home. 
Thank you again Daniel!
