I don’t see a wasp waist so I’m guessing fly.

Hover Fly: Spilomyia longicornis

Hi Carl,
Your Hover Fly or Flower Fly,
Spilomyia longicornis, is a very effective Yellowjacket mimic.  You can also compare your image to photographs posted to BugGuide.

Many thanks!
I plan a photo exhibit in the spring so I’d like to get my educational info right…

Good luck with the exhibit Carl.  This is a lovely photo.  We imagine it looks fantastic at a higher resolution.
