Moth or wasp?

I found this bug in my bean patch early in the morning and wondered what it was. No internet search could help.
The Squash Vine Borer is a moth that mimics a wasp for protection since wasps sting and moths do not. The larvae bore in the stems of squash plants including zucchini and pumpkin. We are guessing that you have some squash growing near the bean patch.
