hello has all.
if that is there I have finally find it is well a hymenoptere.
The tenthrèdes are trés varied in form and color. They are often marked like wasps but the absence of contracting between the thorax and the abdomen makes it possible to differentiate them. As they cannot prick, this phenomenon is classically interpreted like a typical case of imitation.

guten Tag hat alle.
wenn das dort ist, habe ich finde schließlich es bin wirklich ein hymenoptere.
Tenthrèdes werden sehr in Form und in Farbe variiert. Sie werden oft als guêpes markiert, aber das Fehlen eines Schrumpfens zwischen dem Thorax und dem Unterleib erlaubt, sie zu unterscheiden. Da sie nicht stechen können, wird dieses Phänomen klassisch als ein typischer Fall mimétisme interpretiert. Wiedergewonnen von

Superb macro, Laurent.
You shot it on your finger, right?
Very good DOF, sharpness and colours.
Hope someone identifies it for you.

Une très jolie photo, qui nous montre une petit insecte très mignon. :-) Les détails, les couleurs et la composition sont excellents, le fait qu'il soit assis sur une main nous donne une bonne approximation de sa petite taille. Très joli !

Hallo Laurent, ... I don't know this species of Hymenoptera. But it is a marvellous picture of this beautifully coloured insect.

P.S. The species belongs to the genus Rhogogaster of the family Tenthredinidae, exact identification appears difficult.

Bonjour Laurent
Ainsi donc "ils" sont là! Bravo pour la capture, ces yeux verts sont vraiment impressionnants. Félicitations.

Laurent bonjour, je suis passé à coté de cette macro originale par sa composition et son harmonie de couleurs. Cet hymenoptere est trés photogenique et ses pattes zébrées sont du plus bel effet. Bon piqué et mes félicitations, Didier.

Hello Laurent!
Very interesting picture. I don't know what it is before I shot the same insect and posted my photo on TN.
I think green sawflies are realy rare in Poland. I saw it first time in my life... Yours landed on your hand. Fantastic!

Hello Laurent,
I really like this picture because of the following reasons:
1.it presents something non-commercial (even if very colourfull) and rather rare shown on TN (I mean: Hymenoptera)
2.the note is short but informative.
On the other hand I believe that DOF would be better, and also it would be nice to cut some "free space" which is above insect (at this moment proportion between wasp and other parts of picture is not very good).
Anyway, nice idea and nice result! :)
