I am sorry but I have no idea what this is - if one of you insect experts out there is able to id I would be most grateful. It was running around on a silver birch trunk - it's about 1cm long. Didn't see it fly although looking at those wings it looks like it can.

Anyway, thank you for your C&C's on yesterday's peacock butterfly and thanks for looking
Jason

I don't know what it is either, just a slender, red legged beauty very nicely captured.

I think it's a Sawfly (Xiphydria camelus), the black spike at the back is an ovipositor.

A brilliant capture, the details are lovely! Smile
