Great Golden Digger Wasp

Day 193 - July 12, 2011 - Great Golden Digger Wasp

I keep thinking I'm done with wasps and bees and then I find a new one (there are thousands, after all). This, I'm pretty sure, is a great golden digger wasp (Sphex ichneumoneus). This isn't the best picture I took in terms of identifying the wasp but I really like this head-on view.
