Is this a Wasp?

Dig out my old 105mm Micro Nikkor lens to see how it will perform
on my EM-5. Found this insect at One-North Park. Any idea what this is?
Even at F8, the DOF is still shallow. At least I am getting actual size
without cropping.

Thanks Richard. The name sound real scary.
Must be an apex predator in the insect world.
