(I presume that's a hornet James?)

Sphecius speciosus, often simply referred to as the cicada killer or the cicada hawk, is a large digger wasp species. Cicada killers are large, solitary wasps in the family Crabronidae. The name may be applied to any species of crabronid which preys on cicadas, though in North America it is typically applied to a single species, S. speciosus. However, since there are multiple species of related wasps, it is more appropriate to call it the eastern cicada killer. This species occurs in the eastern and midwest U.S. and southwards into Mexico and Central America including Louisiana. They are so named because they hunt cicadas and provision their nests with them. In North America they are sometimes called sand hornets, although they are not hornets, which belong to the family Vespidae. Cicada killers exert a measure of natural control on cicada populations and thus may directly benefit the deciduous trees upon which their cicada prey feed.

You could have fooled us all then mate lol!
Very cool shots bro, look at the hook things on his legs cheers
I had something similar to him the other year in my greenhouse (maybe a bit smaller) It looked to be a solitary insect, it had bitten off a perfect shape off one of the leaves then dug a hole in the cucumber plant soil and buried the leaf and laid eggs inside it.He made a little tunnel to crawl in and out of What a Face I watched him going about his business staying clear as he had a nasty back end on him affraid
