Hi I came across this insect in Scotland this week and haven't been able to identify it yet. I've never seen one before and wondered if anyone knows what it is?

I think it's a sawfly.
"My work is loving the world. Here the sunflowers, there the hummingbird — equal seekers of sweetness. Here the clam deep in the speckled sand. Are my boots old? Is my coat torn? Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me Keep my mind on what matters, which is my work which is mostly standing still and learning to be astonished." — Mary Oliver, from Messenger
