I’m pretty sure this is a fly, not a wasp or hornet. It landed on my camera lens hood near Shebandowan Lake in northern Ontario on June 30, 2013. Sunny and warm temperature. It appeared to be eating or licking something (sweat, oils?) off the lens hood. It stayed for at least 30 minutes until I finally nudged it and made it fly away.

Hi Jeff,
Despite its common name, the Elm Sawfly, Cimbex americana, is a non-stinging relative of bees and wasps and not a true fly.
