Rose pest?

Asked June 6, 2018, 3:55 PM EDT

What is eating my rose? Could you help me figure out what this is so that I can treat accordingly? The bug seen in the 2nd photo might be the culprit?

My guess would be a leafcutter bees. Read here:

The damage they cause is relatively minor and should be tolerated if possible, since this bee is a useful garden insect.
