Common Sawfly (two photos)
This is about the strangest face I've seen on a sawfly
wasp but I haven't
seen all that many yet. Aren't the yellow markings neat in
the orange and black?
This one was gawking at me

Most of the Common Sawfly larvae feed on leaves but some
leaf miners. Eric
Eaton has a great article on this genus of sawfly here.
