Anyone know what this is? It was on my patio rose this morning. Could it be a leaf cutter?




Don't think so, most leaf cutter bees in Britain are dark coloured.

I think it might be one of the larger rose sawflies - not something you want if it is. But they usually have greyish or blackish transparent wings, this one seems to have clear wings...
