Saw this giant bug outside our home a few weeks ago. It was at least 3 maybe 4 inches long or so, approximately.
WE wish your photo had more detail, but this sure looks like a Western Cicada Killer, Sphecius grandis, to us. Though BugGuide does not list any sightings from Texas, the listed range of the Western Cicada Killer includes Texas.
