[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I thank Christodoulos (chrimakris ) for the right tip so it's Leptura quadrifasciata.

The Four Cohesive Longhorn (Leptura quadrifasciata, formerly Strangalia quadrifasciata) is a species of beetle belonging to the family of longhorn beetles and there to the subfamily of narrow blocks (Lepturinae). The names of four Bindig is due to the distinct coloration. On the wing covers (elytra) of the black beetle There are four yellow-orange transverse bands.
The beetles are 11-19 mm long. Their antennae are about body length. The eyes grow around the base of the back sensors. The main feature is the conspicuous orange-yellow cross bands, which gives a similar appearance to wasps and beetles is a mimicry. The cross bands is often jagged and varied in size. The legs and antennae are solid black in the male, the female, the antennae are black yellow brown at the end. That the nature is different from the similar spotted Longhorn Beetle (Strangalia maculata), in which the antennae are yellow and black striped legs and partially exhibit yellowing.
