Large Hunting Wasp

Large Hunting Wasp
Rowan's Ravine Provincial Park, Last Mountain Lake Area, Saskatchewan, Canada
August 25, 2019
Size: About 25mm -30mm
This large black wasp landed on the side of our cabin and scuttled about looking for something and paid me and my camera no mind. I suspect that it was hunting and it reminded me of a Spiderwasp.
