Unknown Black Wasp - Sphex nudus

Unknown Black Wasp - Sphex nudus
Marietta, Cobb County, Georgia, USA
Size: 1 inch
This shot is a couple of years old, but I've failed to get a proper ID. Best I can recall, it was somewhat larger than most I see, but didn't have a blue tint to it.
As usual, thanks in advance.
Much appreciated,
tom

Exquisite!
Just a fantastic image of a really lovely wasp. Thanks for sharing!

 
Thank you!
Hi Eric,

Appreciated more than you know,
tom
