Can anyone ID this?

My one rose bloom is getting these. I am currently dealing with beetles eating my flowers and now I have these too. I am knocking these into a jar of soapy water along with the japanese beetles. They fly away faster than the beetles though. Anyone?
Thanks! ~diane

Are they actually eating the roses? They look rather like predatory wasps which might be eating other small bugs, in which case they might be your friends.
