Is this a Sawfly? I know it's a fly of some sort, but I've never seen one of these before today...

Not a sawfly but a soldier fly (Stratiomyidae) I think. Love the eyes- good capture !

Thanks Brian! That looks right on! :) Very cooperative little thing. I found it mid-afternoon on a sunny day and it barely moved.. except, of course, when the flash fired. heh.
