Possibly Sand Wasp

green-eyed wasp
Any idea what this beauty is called? Found on a fern in Orlando Florida, sorry for the poor photo it was raining and I was trying to get enough DOF hence the slow shutter speed. It was very alert, I assume it has excellent vision.

Hi Jim,
We like this for one of the wasps in the family Crabronidae, possibly a Sand Wasp in the genus Bembix. There are many images that look similar on BugGuide.
