  Looks like a wasp to me Peggy. Probably the species known as the Paper Wasp because their nests are rather like a honeycomb made of thin paper.
Let's see who knows better; I'm more of an etymologist than an entomologist. (That should have a few folk reaching for the Websters Dictionaries)

  According to Bugguide, it's likely a species of Scoliid Wasp. (...possibly Scolia nobilitata)

  It's either a mud dauber wasp or a yellow jacket. I'm leaning mud dauber.
