Image Gallery: Sawflies, ants, bees and wasps

Sawflies (Suborder Symphyta) and ants, bees and wasps (Suborder Apocrita) all belong to the insect Order Hymenoptera. Some species have one pair of wings (unlike flies, which have two pairs), others are wingless, some are solitary and some are colonial, building large nests. Many have interesting shapes, colours and patterns that help to identify them, while others are cleverly camouflaged or mimic their insect prey.
