I am looking to identify this bug I have seen on my Threadleaf coreopsis. Can you help me figure out what this is and if he is a good bug? I am thinking some kind of thread waisted wasp.

This is a Thread-Waisted Wasp in the family Sphecidae, but we are not able to provide you with a species identification. Thread-Waisted Wasps are solitary wasps and they are not aggressive. Adults take nectar, but females prey upon insects to feed to the young. They are considered beneficial.
