Sawfly (<em>Tenthredo verticalis</em>)

Sawfly (Tenthredo verticalis)

A beautiful large distinctively coloured sawfly, fairly common in the region. This one was in Larose Forest. Sawflies are not flies, despite their erroneous name. They are actually a type of wasp, members of the Order Hymenoptera, wasps, bees, ants AND sawflies.

I've never seen a sawfly with yellow striping like this before. Looks like a steady footed insect with all those gripping spines on its feet.
