Blue Ant with Orange Wings?
I’ve been searching on your website and the internet in general the best I can, but I can’t find anything that looks like this. It looks like a huge metallic blue ant with orange wings. We live in Southern California. This was flying around in our backyard, and I’d like to know if it stings and/or is dangerous, etc. Thank you so much.

This is a wasp known as a Tarantula Hawk because it preys upon Tarantulas. They are not aggressive, but will deliver a painful sting if carelessly or accidentally handled.
