What's That Bug? does not endorse extermination

I’ve never seen these before or since

I saw these two a few years back but I’ve always been curious about what they are. They attracted my attention when I heard their wings buzzing. I was on a hike in the Coast Mountains at the time in late spring or early summer I think. Any ideas?

Mating Elm Sawflies

Hi Shaun,
We are very excited to post your photos.  In the past week or so, we have posted two images of Elm Sawflies, including one from Alaska, but this is the first time we have received a photo of a mating pair of Elm Sawflies.  Sawflies are related to wasps and bees, but they do not sting.
