Honeysuckle Sawfly Zaraea fasciata

We saw this crawling around at the base of the honeysuckle in our garden. We looked it up on the web and its quite rare. Apparently the larvae live and graze on honeysuckle leaves. We wondered if it had just emerged from pupating as it was lethargic. We also saw a Humming Bird Hawkmoth in the garden but it was too active for us to get a photo.
