Great shot Bob. It looks a bit like a Robber Fly. These flies attacks and kills bees and wasps.

Thanks, guys. The closest id I've been able to come up with the bug guide is some type of bee fly.

Nice photo. It's a moth in the family Sesiidae, they are commonly called clear-winged moths. They include some pest species. Some of them are very good mimics of wasps.
