This large wasp was hovering over a small sand pile in our yard yesterday morning. As near as I can tell, it is a cicada killer. Correct me if I'm
wrong

Nice IF shot, those are hard to get, even if he was hovering.
Never heard of a cicada killer, till today, but thats what it looks like. I have seen these wasp, and I have seen them carring very large insects, but not cicadas.

I never heard them called that, Doug, but that does describe what they do. I have not seen one for many years, but I remember, from when I was very young, watching them carry cicadas to their underground nests.

I guess because someone might steal the wonderful image and make money with it.
Your a very funny person!

Actually this post went for a few days without a comment and I deleted the picture from my Zenfolio account.

Thanks for the other comments as well.
