Large black wasp. I had to wait patiently for quite a while to get photos as this wasp was foraging through the flowers and rarely stayed still.

    "Some similarities to Scoliid wasps. (Scoliidae) - but no clear view of wing sculpure/venation."

    "I got photos from most angles - what will help the most - top down view?"

    "I've added two more photos, not the best view, but the best I got - it certainly was moving around a lot!"
