Ok, insect wizards, is this a Great Golden Digger Wasp (Sphex ichneumoneus)?

It's hard to get those shots, Bill. They hardly ever sit still long enough.

You got that right, Dan.
There were 5 or 6 digging burrows in a patch of sugar sand, about a meter in diameter. This was in the FL panhandle.
I was going to do a video of them escavating, then a car parked right over top of the escavations. We couldn't wait; we had to leave.
