A Sawfly

This cheeky little fellow was taking some rays on the picnic rug the other day. It is a type of Sawfly, family Tenthredinidea(consisting of nearly 1000 European species). Luckily it's distinctive and in my book! Rhogogaster viridis is fairly common in the British Isles in woods and scrubby places.
