Sand Wasp

Dear Juan,
We believe this is a Sand Wasp in the tribe Bembicini and you can see photos on BugGuide which look very similar.  We have requested assistance from Eric Eaton to confirm or dispute our identification.

Sand Wasp

Eric Eaton confirms Sand Wasp identification
Yes, and probably the genus Bembix, too.  Nice female (note tarsal rake on front legs).
